Theatre Three strives to offer the best educational acting experience. Our experienced teachers help participants explore their creativity, expand their skills, and experience live theatre in
new ways, all while having fun. We believe any student should have a chance to be onstage. We create a safe space for all students to try new things.
Part of our mission is to give our students the most interesting,
innovative, and exciting experience possible. Students will receive two
tickets to attend any Mainstage or Children's Theatre production during
the 2022-23 season. They will be given an opportunity to discuss the
production with their instructors and classmates.
Workshops are limited to 20 students and meet once a week for
for a total of 10 classes. Classes begin February 6, 2023.
