“The word theatre comes from the Greeks. It means, ‘the seeing place.’ It is the place people come to see the truth about life…”
Stories are more than entertainment. They are a mirror in which we see ourselves in all of our beauty and ugliness. Stories also help transform us into the characters we desire to be.
Come and learn the art of storytelling in our fun and challenging drama courses for kids and teens. All of our drama courses are taught by professional theatre artists with lots of experience in acting, directing, designing, and writing for the stage. Students will get to grow in their abilities and confidence, while having a lot of fun.
