Kids Take the Stage

 

Three times each year we offer theater classes for kids. These classes teach theater skills such as acting, singing, pantomime, improvisation and stage make-up, but equally as important, they help kids develop real life skills like confidence, reading, team work, self-esteem and communication.

 

We offer a six-week winter session starting in January/February, a six-week spring session starting in March/April and a six-week fall session beginning in October. We do not offer summer classes so we and the kids can concentrate on the Free Summer Musical Program.

 

Registration for fall classes is now open.
