Showcase & Performance-Based Classes for Young Artists
Showcase classes are open to all young artists ages 4-17. These classes are 6-8 week sessions running seasonally and focusing on the fundamentals of acting, singing, improv, working in an ensemble, and other core skills that build confidence and an appreciation for the arts. These classes culminate in an end-of-session performance for friends and family.
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 Showcase 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.
For all of our classes, need-based scholarships are provided generously through The Brooks and Joan Fortune Family Foundation. Everyone is welcome to apply. You can visit the application and find out more information here.

Cancellation & Refund Policy:
All classes at the Naples Players and in our KidzAct programming have a maximum number of students able to register. By choosing to register and pay tuition for a class, you are securing your spot in the class and therefore holding that spot from being given to another interested student. For that reason, if you ultimately decide to no longer take the class and cancel your registration, there is a small fee for holding that spot from other registrants which is reflected in our refund policy below:
For Traditional/School Year Programming:
- If you cancel your spot more than a week out from the start date of class, you can receive a 90% refund.
- If you cancel your spot less than a week from the start date of the class, you can receive a 75% refund.
- If you cancel your class after the start date, you will not be given a refund
