Learn the craft of theatre making in a friendly, supportive environment. Our courses for adults (18+) are aimed at students who are interested in learning about theatre, creating theatre, and being part of a warm, vibrant community. No experience required.

The next step for acting enthusiasts. This class will teach you the fundamentals of working with a script: What is the hidden information found in a play? How can we make the words our own, and what happens in moments of silence? Students will explore text analysis, voice work, character work, collaborating with a scene partner, and scene work based on acclaimed scripts. If you’ve had a taste of acting and want to dig a little deeper, join us in a words-based "excavation." Subsidy spots are available for each course on a first-come-first-serve, case-by-case basis.
