Enrollment Now Open: Weekly Acting Classes and Spring Break Camp

Yesterday we opened enrollment for our Winter 2017 Acting Classes and Spring Break Camps, held at Tulsa Little Theatre!

Our Winter 2017 class schedule includes eight classes, ranging from age 5 to adult, beginner to advanced. We're offering instruction in improv, stage combat, drama, comedy, movement, auditions, and more. New this session, we're even offering online coaching as a great way to supplement your acting training!

We're also very excited for our Spring Break Camps:

For those looking for a fun-filled experience, check out the Fantasy Adventure: A Lost Pages Experience. With workshop sessions like stage combat, improv, and dance, boys and girls alike will have a blast!

Seasoned actors looking for a fun, but more challenging experience will love our Comedy Boot Camp. This is an educational intensive that's full of laughs as students study different forms, styles, and techniques of comedy. Students will spend the week writing, preparing, and practing their own variety show (in the style of SNL), which they will host and perform at the end of camp.
