Education - Classes

We challenge each of our students individually and as an ensemble. There are many skill sets to be learned as an actor and we have created classes that help your children and teens advance to each new level. To achieve this goal, it's important to have each student in the proper grade level to learn and be challenged most effectively. Below you will find our registration listings. Please look closely at the grade levels in the listings below to determine the best fit for your child.

 Summer Camps 2019


Sorry, all camps are full.


Live Theatre Workshop's summer camps are a one to two week music, theatre, dancing, and technical theatre experience. Every day, students will work with a choreographer on two to three dance numbers, a vocal coach on musical theatre style singing, and with professional teaching artists who will lead them through the process of producing a play. All students will be assigned a role and will learn acting technique and theatre skills through the process of rehearsing their character for a final performance of their play and musical numbers. Camps are arranged by age and grade level--all skill levels are welcome. All of our instructors are trained to introduce and teach in a way that makes the entire experience fun and educational in a safe and low-pressure environment. While students will be very busy learning lines, acting, singing, dancing, building sets, and producing their play, there is plenty of time for acting improvisation and theatre games. Our goal here at LTW is to focus on the process of the putting together a production. We feel all students should understand what it takes to put on a show from start to finish with a focus on teamwork, personal responsibility, friendships, and thinking outside of the box.
