Youth Programs Coming This Fall

It is our belief that theatre arts training is like any other form of training...the more you do it...the better you get. For example, dancers start classes at an early age and continue weekly, or the athlete who trains every day for years.  Theatre arts training is most effective when students continue to develop their skills in improvisation, character and scene analysis, pantomime, auditioning, movement and vocal production skills.  Theatre education provides more than just acting skills but skills for life.
