Ages 12+

Our workshops for teens provide opportunities for more experienced students to further hone their training and for those just discovering theater to jump right in. 

Private coaching is available in a variety of areas including audition prep, vocal performance, and Shakespearean acting. Teens will be challenged to think critically about the material, hone in on performance quality, and push themselves to new performance levels.

In addition to the classes listed below, check out our Craving Creativity here at Lyric Arts and our Super Hero Slam day camps at Urban Air Adventure Park in Coon Rapids—CLICK HERE FOR MORE DETAILS
