Skills & Performance-Based Classes for Young Artists
Skills Classes vs. Performance Classes
Skills Classes are open to all young artists ages 4-17. Skills Classes are 6-8 week sessions run seasonally and focus on the fundamentals of acting, singing, improv, working in an ensemble, and other core skills that build confidence and an appreciation for the arts.
Performance Classes require an audition for admission and are associated with an upcoming TNP KidzAct stage performance. We recommend that children new to acting start in our Skills Classes and work towards auditioning for a Performance Class. Performances Classes require a commitment to a more rigorous rehearsal and performance schedule. Visit the Upcoming Auditions page to see our next KidzAct shows.

In Third Act, students work at an increased level of intensity to create, rehearse, and perform on stage.
Students will learn teamwork, patience, sensory awareness, and communication through emotion-oriented, confidence-building theatre games.
Using material from our upcoming productions such as Mary Poppins and more; this workshop series will prepare any performer for auditions, rehearsals, performances, and beyond.
Join Laura Lorusso in this online class for teens & adults, to cover the craft of writing plays from creation to completion. For teens, you will have the opportunity to create a piece eligible for an #ENOUGH partnership. Click HERE for more information.
