A Message to Parents From Artistic Director, Dru Rabin

Parenting a Theater Teen is Harder Than You Might Expect.

As a parent of two daughters in the performing arts, I understand first-hand the new challenges you face as your teenager navigates the highs and lows of the performing arts world. You’re not alone.

Whether your teen is aspiring to pursue theater in college or stepping onto the stage for the first time, we’re here to support you and your family every step of the way. Our expertise lies in guiding young performers towards success, focusing on the key areas of development essential for their growth.

We’ve crafted a program that specifically meets these needs, empowering your teen to thrive on and off the stage. It’s taught by coaches of exceptional caliber, not only in their skills but also as mentors, the kind I’d trust with my own daughters.

Your Teen Will Grow with every Class & Rehearsal
