Acting & Theatre Classes for Kids

Expert Training, Lifelong Friendships.

Traveling Players classes and summer camps/conservatories offer expert training in acting, character creation, physical comedy, stage combat, improvisation, and text analysis. We also value the spirit of the ensemble. Our ensemble- and team-building activities create a strong, supportive cast — and friendships that can last a lifetime!

As a parent, it has been such a thrill over the years to see all of these positive developments in my daughter and to have found such a unique and innovative program where she has received intensive and constructive theater training in an environment that takes the participants seriously, wants them to improve and strengthen their skills, but also wants them to have fun!

Acting & Improv

current grades 2-4 | $400

Tuesdays, 6 - 7 pm | Jan 16 - March 12

Perfect for beginning performers or those with a bit of experience, this improvisation and acting class gives budding actors an overview of the art of performing. By playing fun-filled improvisational theatre games, we will tap into the creative juices of each student while teaching basic acting skills: clarity of thought and action, mental agility, spontaneity, actively listening and responding, and creative problem solving. While rehearsing short scenes, students will practice analyzing scripts, building a character, balancing logic with imagination, and collaborating with scene partners.

Important Dates:
-March 12: Showcase!

I just wanted to thank you and Traveling Players for all the training you guys have given me in the last three years.  I got third place in my school’s Shakespeare monologue competition [as a freshman], and I give the credit ENTIRELY to the very worthy Traveling Players Ensemble. I love Traveling Players so much and I am glad to have met each and every person I’ve met there!
