Dramatics Program

Our classes allow young artist to improve stage presence, increase understanding of theatrical terminology, and develop the basic skills needed to “stand out” in auditions.

Our Dramatics program focuses on a specific skill for 8 to 12 weeks and concludes with a performance project. Focus areas include improv, puppetry, one act plays, character development, acting for film, dance for theatre, and much more!

In addition to actor training, we offer theatre tech instruction which focuses on set design, prop development, lighting, and sound.

All classes are offered weekly and are divided by specific age groups.
