At Live Arts, we offer year-round, process-driven educational opportunities for children, teens, and adults. Our classes, workshops, festivals, and free groups offer community members the opportunity to explore all aspects of theater, including: acting, playwriting, script analysis, improvisation, musical theatre, and movement.

We also provide students the unique opportunity to learn the technical craft of theater through seminars, workshops, and technical apprenticeships with our experienced designers, technicians, and stage management teams.

Live Arts is committed to creating unique opportunities for young people to learn the craft of theatre and to participate in Live Arts productions. In our educational workshops and classes, students learn from experienced theatre artists, make new friends, and develop a life-long passion for the performing arts. In our after-school classes, productions, and summer camps, we provide a nurturing and safe environment in which to grow as an actor, designer, writer, or technician.
