Classes will be offered in all areas of performing and creative arts – such as audition preparation, stage presence, musical theater dance, voice, acting, technical theater, playwriting and creative writing, public speaking, and more – all taught by experienced professionals. All classes take place at the Barrow-Civic Theatre unless otherwise directed. Our mission is to use an array of artistic exploration opportunities to enrich and empower individuals of all ages through high-quality creative arts education.
