Arts Education

Our award-winning educational programs are designed for youth from a wide range of backgrounds, communities, and schools. We engage with youth to explore all aspects of making theatre: story and expression, connection with others, examination of self, and discovery of the world—all while having fun!

  • Classes

    Our year-round classes give aspiring actors of all ages from 5 to 18 years old, the opportunity to work with professional Teaching Artists and Company Members. Adult classes are also available.
