Spread your performing wings!  Our Big Kids classes focus on building a strong foundation for young people in the many aspects of theater and performance.  We use games and playful exercises to encourage creativity, build confidence, and foster ways to work together as a group.  PLAYmaking workshops also provide students with experience in creating, rehearsing and performing for an audience.  Skills & Craft workshops dig deeper into developing specific artistic skills such as developing a character, playwriting, technical theater and design, and more.  Triple Threat workshops provide training in the three skills that make a successful musical theater actor: singing, dancing, and acting. 

Big Kids will learn playful new ways to channel their creativity, express themselves artistically, and   All levels of experience welcome!
