Adult Programs

Whether participants are new to the stage or seasoned performers or playwrights, our classes for adults provide a place to explore, strengthen skills, and grow as artists and people. Our classes for seniors are designed to help transform attitudes toward aging to a new vision of continuous growth, and to honor and celebrate the sharing of rich and varied experiences of older adults.

While most of our adult classes work best in person, we ask for your continued patience as we re-imagine classes for the virtual world.
