Ages 10-12

Our tween programs help young actors to continue to build a solid foundation while also providing opportunities for more experienced young artists to dig deeper into more specialized topics. 

We use tried-and-true as well as innovative theatrical exercises to encourage creativity, build confidence, and foster ways to work together as a group. Tweens will learn to think outside the box and express themselves artistically in new and challenging ways.  All levels of experience welcome!


Diaries of Dorks and Wimpy Kids


The books in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid and Dork Diaries series are filled with the stories of our heroes’ innermost thoughts and tales of their everyday lives.  In this class, our teaching artist will help students craft their own “everyday” story, while building self-confidence and acting skills.
