Kids Take the Stage

Several times each year we offer theater classes for kids. These classes teach theater skills such as acting, singing, pantomime and improvisation, 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 also offer occasional week-long camps. We do not offer classes in June and July so we and the kids can concentrate on the Free Summer Musical Program.

Registration is Now Open for Spring Break Camps and Spring Classes

Spring Break Camps run the Week of March 11 to 15.

Spring classes begin the week of March 25.

Financial Assistance is available for qualified families, email Miki Robinson for details.

Fractured Fairy Tales​
