Classes are project based, incorporating multiple facets of the theatre arts, and some include performances at the end of each session.  
There are no cookie cutter theatre classes here - each project is specifically designed for our program and its theatre artists.
Class sizes are limited, so we may ensure a safe, nurturing creative space for theatre artists.
