Building Character Onstage

Town Hall Theatre is 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. 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!  

All performances and classes at Town Hall Theatre are inclusive. In addition to accessible seating areas, the theatre provides assistive listening units for performances. Please allow two weeks notice for staff to coordinate additional inclusive services such as audio description, sign-interpreted performances or braille programs. Periodic sensory-friendly performances include reduced lighting, softer sounds, and visual cards for loud sounds such as thunder. Learn more about inclusive and adaptive recreation programming at the RecPlex. 

Intro to Acting

Ages 4-7

Make new friends, become comfortable speaking in front of a group, and feel successful about putting on your own mini-play! Each class will begin by reading a story or picking out a costume. Students then use the story and their imaginations to create a mini-play. Family and friends are invited to be our audience the last five minutes of each class!

Acting-Level 2

Private Acting Lessons
