Civic Theatre students will gain an appreciation of theatre arts, as well as a deeper understanding of the importance of teamwork, discipline, focus and commitment, all while making new friends and having fun with their peers. Students will also benefit from an enhanced sense of self-image and confidence while they foster self-expression and develop creative acting skills.

The curricula are designed to give students the best of both worlds—training in the acting technique plus real experience onstage through “Take a Bow” showcases at the end of each 6-week session performed for family and friends.
