Fashion Kids

Why is there such a wide age range? 

One of the best things about theatre is the uniqueness of being in a cast. And casts almost always have diverse ages. We feel by widening the age range, we’re able to maintain that uniqueness and stay close to a typical “in-person” theatrical experience.

Can students take more than one class? 

Of course. You can take all four if you want! 

Kids in Vegetable Farm

What materials will I need? 

You will need some sort of device. This can be a computer, tablet, or even a phone (though the bigger the screen the better.)  We also recommend having a water bottle nearby, a notebook, and your favorite writing utensil.
