Grades (7th – 12th)
Registration opens June 1st!
The young artists in Studio 3 engage in studies of dance, music and text-based acting work, using scripts and non-scripted practice to learn and apply theatrical skills. More complex age-appropriate theatrical material is used for this age group, to keep their interest and engagement as they explore stories in dramatic fashion. At this age, the artists often ask to be challenged, and we meet them where they are so they can express their individuality, as well as learn to be a part of a collaborative whole, while encouraging them to go further in their theatrical learning and application.
At the end of the Studio class sessions, there is an opportunity for the students to share what they have learned with friends and family.
Studio 3 participants have their very own fully-staged and produced show in the Fall Studios. They can also participate in the Spring Studio 2 & 3 Production (grades 2-12), and join in several production experience options during the summer. These performance opportunities take the children through supportive and age-designed rehearsal processes, culminating in shows that are up in front of an audience, complete with lights, sound, costumes, props and set.
Registration opens June 1st!

Matilda is a little girl with astonishing wit, intelligence and psychokinetic powers. She’s unloved by her cruel parents but impresses her schoolteacher, the highly loveable Miss Honey. Over the course of her first term at school, Matilda and Miss Honey have a profound effect on each other’s lives, as Miss Honey begins not only to recognize but also appreciate Matilda’s extraordinary personality. Matilda’s school life isn’t completely smooth sailing, however – the school’s mean headmistress, Miss Trunchbull, hates children and just loves thinking up new punishments for those who don’t abide by her rules. But Matilda has courage and cleverness in equal amounts, and could be the school pupils’ saving grace!
