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.

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!
