Performance Workshops: (PW)

Students take part in a short productions, designed for their age group and directed by our teachers. Throughout the week they work on their lines, develop crucial theatrical skills, and occasionally even assist backstage on technical aspects. This is a great class to nurture a growing passion for theatre.

Play Makers: (PM)

Young students take a story or tale they know and create their own version on stage! Through theatre activities, carefully prepared crafts, and guidance by our teachers, our young students take their first steps into theatre. This is a great class that combines acting and devising. Come activate your imagination and share your ideas!

Musical Theatre Revue: (MTR)

This class is for students who wish to develop their musical performance skills, focusing on dances, songs, and scenes performed in musicals. We will be selecting hits from the Broadway’s biggest productions, granting our students an eclectic overview of the cornerstones of musical theatre.

Paper Theater Description: Toy theater, also called paper theater and model theater is a form of miniature theater dating back to the early 19th century in Europe. Toy theaters were often printed on paperboard sheets and sold as kits. Toy theatres were assembled and performed for family members and guests, sometimes with live musical accompaniment. Toy theatre has seen a resurgence in recent years and there are numerous international toy theatre festivals throughout the Americas and Europe.
