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 Closed

Our next round of classes will be begin in October 2024.

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

Fractured Fairy Tales​

4th, 5th & 6th Grades

Have you ever thought fairy tales seemed a bit unrealistic? Can you really want to marry someone ten minutes after you meet them? Do frogs really turn into princes? Does a kiss bring you out of a curse induced coma? If you have doubts about any of these things, this is the class for you! We will take popular fairy tales and rewrite them to suit a more modern world. Once written, we will stage them and present them to our adoring public!! Space is limited to 12.
