Theatre is a vibrant medium for channeling self-expression and creativity. Our core classes focus on developing essential skills in sustaining focus, physical awareness and expression, and imagination while our specialty classes offer opportunities for more intensive exploration in a specific aspect of theatre-making.

WINTER Audition Workshop

From headshots, to audition material, to how to enter a room - this exciting workshop for grades 6-12 will take the mystery out of the audition process.

Most summer theatre programs focus on producing work that’s already written, and all too often there are a few big roles and a lot of small ones. Our distinctive feature is that we build our plays from the ground-up so EVERYONE has a chance to shine! It’s definitely more challenging, but we believe it’s the most valuable and exciting way to make theatre. People’s Light wants to make sure EVERY child has a meaningful and memorable experience with us.

Content areas for all programs include: improvisation, vocal strengthening, expressive movement, sound/music, playwriting, design, and professional theatre practice.
We hope you’ll join is for an amazing experience!
