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 Joan and Brooks Fortune Family Foundation. Everyone is welcome to apply. You can visit the application and find out more information here.

What is the difference between Showcase Classes and Performance Classes?
KidzAct Showcase Classes at TNP focus on building upon the core concepts of acting, singing, dictation, and other confidence-building skills that prepare students for the ultimate goal of taking a Performance Class. Performance Classes are associated with an upcoming KidzAct stage show and can only be entered by audition. Generally, there are four to six KidzAct shows per calendar year that provide students with the opportunity to experience a more intensive schedule of rehearsals and performances culminating in a full-scale stage show.
How can my child audition for a show?
