Youth and Adult Classes
Spring | Summer | Fall

Beginning Spring 2019, Harlequin relaunches its once-popular education program.

The program is designed for youth and adults interested in learning the fundamentals of theatre and nurturing existing talent to become active members of the theatre community. Spring and Fall classes are scheduled for five weeks. Classes consist of two-hour sessions, Monday and Wednesday each week for ages 8 to 12 and two-hour
sessions, Tuesday and Thursday each week for ages 13 to 18. Sessions for adults ages 19+ are held on Fridays from 7-9pm.

Sessions include instruction on acting, auditioning, choreography, improv, scene study, and musical theatre. All day classes for the Summer Conservatory for Young Actors, ages 14-18, will provide a more intensive exploration into the Study of Theatre.

Students will receive conservatory style training in Acting, Voice and Diction, Movement, Improv, Shakespeare, Scene Study and more. Conservatory students will also receive training in Costume Design, Lighting Design, Set Design, Stage Management and more from Guest Artists around the community.

Scholarships are available for families with children unable to cover the costs associated with attending youth classes.
