Build Your Theater Skills

Classes provide a safe environment for young people to find a higher sense of play, stretch their imaginations, and gain valuable social skills such as listening, risk taking, ensemble building, public speaking, and leadership through storytelling. These classes are wildly fun, collaborative, spontaneous, and begin to build skills for the young actor or non-actor’s creative toolbox.

Portland Stage reserves the right to combine programs or extend the ages of the participants at its discretion.

Education For All
