Group acting classes are offered related
to basic acting training and the business of acting. Private Lessons are offered for individual students who want one-on-one
training and training for auditions. Twice each year an Acting Expo is offered as an intensive weekend of acting training.
During the summer an Acting Summer Camp is held three separate times for students. In addition, theater events are held during
the year for students to have the opportunity to perform before audiences. There is a Scene Night in spring which exposes
the students to some of the greatest writer’s Neil Simon, August Wilson, Loraine Hansberry, and more then we have
Christmas play “Cinderella’s Crunk Christmas” that allow them to use improv skills in a structured environment.
Planning is under way to offer two more productions a year
