Musical Theatre and Drama

About Our Classes

Peformers of all ages can gain experience acting, dancing, and singing in a positive environment where participation is encouraged and all skill levels are welcome. There is no audition required to join any of our theatre courses! Performances are the goal of many of these classes and, pending future health restrictions, performances may be on stage or virtually through Zoom.

Our workshops are a great way for emerging artists to dive deep into a specific topic of interest. They also offer engaging introductions to a variety of topics of interest in the theatre world from writing to performing.

Please Note: if your child is interested in singing but not dancing/acting, we have Private Lessons available in Musical Theatre in our Voice Department or we have a Youth Choir program. More class information can be found in our online registration system or by clicking on the course links below. Browse all of our registration options.

Acting 101 for Adults

In this term long course, work with other amateur and beginner adult performers to put together a one act play for virtual performance. Work with theatre artist and educator Vanessa Nezamloo and get more comfortable speaking and performing in front of an audience. No previous experience required, all skill levels are welcome!

Advanced Glee

Advancing skills from our Senior Glee program, students who have had some previous experience and new aspiring performers can join us for an exploration of more advanced technique and more mature musicals.

Broadway Genius

Create a short musical theatre production from beginning to end with your classmates and under the guidance of our musical theatre instructor.

Dungeons & Dragons

In our Dungeons & Dragons program, learn about the 40 year old role playing and dice game that let's you create mighty heroes to battle monsters, solve puzzles, and reap rewards. Be led by a Dungeon Master through a variety of short quests where you will create characters, do creative writing, and learn the skills to be your own Dungeon Master to begin starting quests at home.

Mini & Junior Glee

Use this entry level class to learn about the music and dance pieces that go into musical theatre productions without rehearsing a whole play. We sing pop, rock, jazz, and music from musicals. Mini Glee is for ages 4-5 and Junior Glee is designed for ages 6-8. These courses are taught by Fallon Hantelman-Stewart.

Senior Glee

In this next step up from our Mini & Junior Glee, become a triple threat and dance, sing, AND act to create a show big enough for the stages on Broadway. These classes are instructed by Chip McDaniel (Tue), Kirsten Hinz (Thu), and Karen Rose (Sat). For Friday classes the instructor is TBD.

Showtime

This performance-based class stages one act plays each term under the direction of Vanessa Nezamloo. No audition required to join. Showtime is for ages 10-15.

Theatre Workshops for Youth & Adults

Under the expert guidance of our instructor Karen Rose, students will be able to learn new skills that will apply to any performance. Each Theatre Workshop covers a new topic that will prepare aspiring actors for what they will encounter in their theatre career or help adults looking to improve their speaking in their professional careers. Theatre Workshops are for both youth (ages 10-16) and adults (ages 16+). You can join for just one month or come to them all; these are one time courses, so, registration in previous workshops is NOT required in order to join the next workshop. Workshops are available once a month for 2 hours on Saturdays.
