Thank you for exploring the educational offerings at Playhouse on Park. We are proud to offer a variety of educational opportunities for grades K – adult. Whether your goal is a career in professional theatre, or to explore your creativity and imagination in a new way, the Playhouse is a home for quality theatre instruction. Theatre education strengthens self-confidence, team building, listening and responding skills, and can instill a lifelong passion for the arts. At the Playhouse, students learn the vocabulary, habits, and joy of performing in a safe and comfortable environment. Explore our programs below, we have many options for both individuals and for groups. From a Creative Kids class to an Adult Improvisation class, Playhouse on Park seeks to embrace and provide opportunities for artists at every level, including our community of young artists, high school artists, and adult learners.

In addition, we are happy to work with you to customize a program that might be right for your school, boy scout or girl scout troop, or company. Whether it is for a weekly class, a summer program, an internship, a master class, a field trip, or a workshop, we look forward to getting to know you.
