The Academy is a place where students of all abilities can learn about the theatre.
Whether a student is looking to get their feet wet, or is a seasoned veteran of the stage, our camps give each student the opportunity to grow and thrive in a supportive environment.
Our sessions focus on theatre skills, knowledge, theory, and practice, and typically culminate in a live performance for friends and family. We take students through all phases of the production process: from auditions to rehearsals to performance. Students walk away from our camps feeling great about not only the final production, but their own inner growth and new skills they learned along the way.
Our goal is to give each of our students the opportunity to explore his or her own creativity and understand all aspects of theatre in a fun and safe manner. We strive to create an atmosphere of cooperation rather than competition. This helps to promote a nurturing environment that is supportive of personal development.
We believe that certified, qualified, and educated instructors make all the difference in the world. Our instructors are organized, prepared, and have enthusiasm that is bound to rub off on students as we teach them not only theatrical lessons, but life lessons as well.
