Acting Classes


Winter Performance Classes

January – March
Grades 4 – 12
Our winter classes feature everything you love about TPE’s summer camp – except for the outdoors.  Small ensembles of dedicated performers rehearse a fully-designed production under the careful guidance of a professional director.  You’ll even take your show on the road, riding one of our purple buses to perform throughout the area, before returning home for a grand final festival.


Spring Skills Classes

More information coming soon.

April – May
Grades 4 – 12
Our short and sweet spring classes focus in on specific acting skills, giving you a chance to explore a topic in depth without spending all your time on it.  Classes vary from year to year, but include: movement for the actor, improvisation, Commedia, and mask.


Fall Acting Classes

October – December
Grades 4 – 12
The fall classes focus on building your theatrical skills: improv, scene study, and monologues. Small class size means plenty of individual instruction, and the supportive, high-energy environment brings out the best in every student.  Whether you’re checking us out for the first time, or a summer camp veteran looking to hone your craft, these classes will take your acting to the next level.  All classes end with a showcase performance in December.

During the fall, we also offer several One-Day Intensives, focusing on skills like stage combat, improv, clowning, and Commedia dell’Arte.
