Led by Nashville theatre professionals, your son or daughter will learn from experts in the field. Not only does this ensure a quality, educational experience for all involved, but provides an invaluable opportunity for those kids who are serious about performing to learn first-hand what they can expect--and what will be expected of them--in a professional working environment later.


Our instructors have received training and degrees from universities and/or professional drama programs. Our instructors are highly qualified in acting, playwriting, directing, stage managing, music directing, and arts management. All have experience in working in the local, regional, and national theatre scene.
