There are many ways to be a part of the theatre and we offer a number of different courses to meet a wide variety of needs for learning everything from acting to technical specialties to play writing. You’ll see below a glimpse at what we’ve got to offer right now.

Winter Keiki Workshops for Ages 8 to 13!

Character Development
 – December 27 to 29, 2017

Learn how to bring characters to life!  Instructor Emma Zeiler will help students develop deeper understanding of their roles by putting themselves into their character’s shoes.  Memorization is important, but bringing a character to life is what acting is all about.  Students should wear comfortable clothes and closed-toe shoes, and bring a lunch.

Humorous Skits
- January 3 to 5, 2018

Exercise your funny bone!  Instructor Emma Zeiler will guide students in the exploration of comedic acting through group performance.  The workshop will feature very short plays performed with limited props and costumes in an informal setting.  Students should dress comfortably for movement and wear closed-toe shoes, and should bring a lunch.
