Studio Classes

The Studio Program offers online evening and weekend classes via Zoom for patrons, theatre lovers and people invested in the arts who need a flexible schedule to study the craft of acting.

LEVEL I
For those who are interested in exploring the craft of acting. Those with no acting experience will find this is just the place for personal growth and development, whether polishing communication skills, overcoming shyness or just gaining a little spontaneity in their lives.

LEVEL II
For those who have taken Acting I or the equivalent and are interested in broadening and deepening acting skills. Most students find​ that they gain confidence in their first acting class and want to try another session. Others with previous acting experience may just want to hone their skills.

LEVEL III
For those with a grasp of the fundamentals and some performance experience and are curious about exploring deeper possibilities.

EVERYBODY
For all levels of experience and the general public.
