ACT After-School Classes

Hello ACT Students and Families!

Things are going to be a bit different this year, but we are nevertheless excited to bring you some theatre fun this fall taught by our wonderful teaching artists! Here are some things to know about our fall session II classes:

  • Classes feature new material each session and are designed to be repeated. If you’ve just completed Session I, we hope you’ll join us again!
  • Don’t let tuition requirements stop you from signing up for classes! There is ample scholarship funding available so that everyone who wishes to participate can do so (as space allows.)
  • Classes will be limited to 8 students per session, and all of our theatre games, warm-ups, and exercises, and rehearsals will be physically distanced.
  • We have put in place a number of health and safety measures to address Covid-19. Please read the full guide here.
  • We are aware that because of class size limitations, some students may not be able to participate in classes this fall. If you find that classes have filled before you could register, please email us to let us know! We are doing our best to offer the appropriate number of classes, and are interested to know if we can be offering more to meet the needs of our community!
