Theatre & Music

Tickle trunks to improv games to acting on stage

Our Theatre & Music classes nurture creativity from a spark into a toolbox of life skills. We see how musical theatre harmonies foster teamwork, how learning to project your voice builds self-confidence, and how leadership drive can be shaped in the director’s chair.

Renowned local theatre and music professionals guide and support students through a discovery of collaboration, timing, memorization, melody, harmony, and the relationship between body and instrument.

General Programs

Flex your creative muscles with a series of theatre classes that span Improv, Musical Theatre, and Acting for the Camera. Arts Umbrella’s General Theatre Programs challenge imagination, help grow confidence, and engage creative minds. All under the guidance of professional actor-instructors who lead the way.

Early Learning Theatre & Music

Early Learning classes inspire a love of drama and music in young creative minds, while Parent & Me programs allow grown-ups to join little ones in the classroom for fun, games, and adventures.

Year Long Programs

Each year-long program (Pre-Professional Program and Theatre Intensive) is one of structure, offering aspiring actors and directors the space to sharpen their skills. Vocal, movement, and theatrical exercises help develop teamwork and cooperation – discipline and technique – creative expression and individual artistry.

Participants are chosen by audition and will be placed in the troupe that best fits the student’s age, experience, skill, schedule, and goals. Please note that the Pre-Professional Theatre Training Program is a full year commitment.
