Transforming Lives Through Theatre Education

Transforming Lives Through Theatre Education

We work to make both the artistic and the real-life benefits of theatre training accessible to all. The Theatre Lab enrolls over 2,800 kids, teens, and adults a year. Offerings target beginners and veteran actors alike through a wide range of programs—summer camps for kids, Saturday acting classes, acting or playwriting classes for rookies, public speaking for non-theatre professionals, the rigorous Honors Acting Conservatory, and the community-driven Life Stories Program.

Celebrate with Us: 2021 Cabaret Benefit

Our fanciest fundraiser of the year returns on Sunday, November 14 with catered dinner and drinks, live performances, and auction items you can’t find anywhere else. Join us at The Schuyler or party from home. Sponsorship opportunities available.
