BUILDING CHARACTER ONSTAGE!

Town Hall Theatre is a place where children build self-esteem, confidence and character! We offer a place to learn about the performing arts in a positive, student-centric environment.

Children may be introduced to theatre in our beginning  class, Intro to Acting, or grow as an actor in our tiered acting series. Others may have fun performing in a group-written play or singing their heart out in a voice class! We also offer private acting and voice lessons for a more concentrated, one-on-one experience.

No matter what age or experience level you are, there’s sure to be a class for you!
