Hershey Area Playhouse Theatre Academy 2014-2015

Class Line up for 2014-2015

Hershey Area Playhouse is happy to announce that our acting classes will continue through winter and spring sessions along with our traditional summer camp in June and Theatre in the Gardens Camp in partnership with the Hershey Gardens in mid July.

Theatre Academy classes are offered in three semesters during the school year as repeatable skill building classes culminating in an Open House performance at the end of each session. Fall and winter sessions run for eight weeks, followed by a six week spring session introducing special topics such as Acting for the Camera. Summer performance workshops run for two intensive weeks, with a focus on a full scale evening performance complete with lighting sound and technical support.

All classes are taught by experienced acting teachers with both theatre and education backgrounds; and comply with the Pennsylvania standards for excellence in arts education. The Playhouse is committed to maintaining two teachers per class whenever the number of students enrolled rises over ten children. Each session ends with an open house performance. Registration for classes can be completed by downloading our online form at www.hersheyareaplayhouse.com
