Summer Theater Workshops


A boutique style theatre workshop, for students of all experience levels. Each class is a unique, small group experience where every child receives organic, process based training in the theatre arts from experienced performing artists. Workshops are a space to explore, experiment, and engage in the performing arts, through stories inspired by popular classics; adapted specifically for young performers by a team of international composers and our in-house playwright/ director.
