Education

Come learn from us how we make the magic happen!

Centerstage is offering a one-of-a-kind theatre experience for children ages 7-12. With the children’s voice and imagination at the center of this six-week camp, it will truly be an experience unlike any other. Students will work together, facilitated by professional actress and teaching artist Andrea Rausch, to create an original play — written, designed and performed by the students.

Classes will be hosted on zoom every Tuesday and Thursday, 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm, from May 11th to June 25th, 2021.

For questions, to enroll, or to receive updates about upcoming classes send an email to our education program administrator: robin@centerstagetheatre.com, or call the office at (253) 661-1444 and leave a voicemail. We are working remotely but check voicemail frequently!
