Actors’ Playground Production Classes/Camps
Actors’ Playground Production Classes are a foundation of our education program. Students come to the theater for afterschool, weekend and summer classes. These camps usually end with a performance of their play for family and friends on the stage at the theatre.
These classes are broken in to age groups so students get to work with their peers in a non-threatening environment. Age groups are 5-8, 8-11, 11-14, and 13-18. The students usually have 8-10 weeks to learn basic skills, lines, movement, and all around performing skills. There are many fun offering that are entertaining and challenging for most age groups, and all taught by our staff of working professionals.
