Opening the Hearts, Minds & Imaginations of Children through the Art of Storytelling & Play

Fall 2023 Classes

Classes start on September 16th! Click on a class to go to our registration page!

Parent and Me classes are a GREAT way to kickstart your child’s love of theatre! Together, we will focus on exploring, and developing fine motor skills, gross motor skills, vocal expressions, and social emotional learning through dance, song, and acting, in partnership between the student and their grownup! Sessions might feature a book as a jumping off point, a song, a story, or a puppet, and take place in our new “Imagination Space” — a room meant to inspire creativity and imagination in our youngest learners. Drop in option also available at $22 per session.

A WONDERFUL way for our 4-6 year old students to explore one of our upcoming productions: Stellaluna! Students will learn about the 5 tools of the actor: Imagination, Concentration, Cooperation, Body, and Voice, while preparing their own small play, which they will share at the end of the 8 week session!



For our “Explorer” class, students will dive a little deeper into their actor toolbox, and will create their very own piece inspired by two of our Fall productions: Stellaluna and Desvelado!

NEW THIS YEAR! Every student who enrolls in this Play Production class will be part of our inaugural Youth Performer Company, which we call KidCo! Students in this class will be cast in The True Story of the So-Called Big Bad Wolves, which will perform November 11th, and will be the first show performed in our new blackbox space at 78th Street Studios. Enroll today, spots are limited!

Here by popular demand: Musical Theatre! Students in grades 4-8 will explore the foundations of Musical Theatre, with some singing, some acting, some dancing, and a lot of fun! Together, the group will learn pieces that they can share out at the end of the session with their adoring fans!


Back by popular demand! We are so excited to be offering Dungeons and Dragons and Drama again this season! A great way for students to explore the FUNdamentals of performance through the fun of cooperative play!
