Our active Youth Theatre each year includes a number of classes, shows, and camps to keep young theater lovers engaged in the theatrical arts.
Each spring and fall, we offer a number of classes for youths. Ages from preschool age(Fully potty trained is the requirement) to the age of18. Classes vary each season, but always include Theatre 101 courses, as well as classes focused on Shakespeare, voice, puppetry, playwriting, and improv, among others.
In the fall and winter months, our Youth Theatre stage performs two shows.
Each summer, our Youth Theatre Camp brings hundreds of young people to the theater to learn about acting, directing, set building, props, and costuming, and culminates in a show.

Hi I’m Ally! I have been doing for 14 years and don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. My career is in Early Childhood and being able to bring my passion and career together has been such a joy for me. I have been teaching Curtain Call since 2019. We focus on learning simple theatre skills like being quiet back stage, not touching others props, projection, acting out our emotions etc through game, song and dance. I can’t wait to meet our new little thespians and help them grow a love and passion for theatre.
