The Creative Arts  Actor Training Program


Our program is intentionally crafted to help students explore emerging theater skills in a supportive and positive environment. "Age appropriate" instruction recognizes each student's level of skill and ability. Creative expression, especially with educational theater, is a very personal experience for students of all ages.

It's always amazing to see what students learn and accomplish by working together with the support of caring and passionate theater instructors. Self expression, confidence, pride, responsibility and collaboration are natural results of acting and performing.

Theater skills = Life skills.
