Youth Programs

Taught by some of Washington’s best-known theatre professionals and educators, our camps and classes emphasize the benefits of drama training both onstage and off—from increased self-confidence and communication and teamwork skills, to a desire to stay active in mind and body.

Classes for Kids (Grades 1-8) 

Youth Classes Now Enrolling


We believe that young artists, whether new to the craft or brimming with experience, deserve a place where they can be challenged. A place where they can develop superior theatre skills while learning to take artistic risks, explore new creative paths, and have fun doing it! Our programs meet students wherever they are and give them the tools to take their artistry to the next level. More than a third of all participants in our youth programs receive full or substantial scholarships.

“I love that the staff are so encouraging, supportive and knowledgeable about dramatic arts! It really has made a difference in both of my children’s confidence.”
