THEATER CLASSES

Artists' Exchange offers classes for the beginning, intermediate and advanced actor that focus on "the method," which strives to make each actor understand the most honest and truthful way to create and perform their role. Classes are available for children, teens and adults. Each class culminates in a performance, to which friends and family are invited.

Artists' Exchange produces four main stage productions per year. Students who participate in our acting classes are encouraged to audition for our productions to test their progress in an actual play. 

A note on theater classes: Theater classes are structured in a cumulative manner, meaning students are encouraged to repeat classes and continue to learn. The instruction is student-focused and is based on objectives identified for each learner. While students are grouped by age, they learn based on what they know and how they can continue to grow.
