For over twenty-five years, Curtain Call has provided a variety of dramatic arts classes and workshops for kids, teens and adults!

Our Educational Philosophy: Curtain Call’s theatre arts classes for ages five thru adult focus not only in building performance skills, but social and public speaking skills, self-confidence, creative instincts, teamwork, collaborative and leadership qualities. We cater to all skill levels whether the raw-beginner or experienced professional and offer a low-pressure environment where students are able to explore creative techniques that are applicable to any performance, presentation and even social situation. Full-day summer vacation programs are also available for kids ages six thru sixteen as well as onstage and behind-the-scenes opportunities in our Summer Youth Theatre for participants entering fourth grade thru age twenty-one (Click here for Summer Programs information).
 
Class Sizes: Our Fall, Winter and Spring Classes range from six to sixteen students and run once a week for eight-week sessions (avoiding  any holiday dates). Our Summerstock full-day workshop program accepts as many as forty students per session.
 
Teaching Staff: Our staff consists of area professionals devoted to education in the arts (see their credentials in the sidebar to the right). Staff credentials can be found in the column to the right.
 
Classroom Spaces: Our classroom spaces provide nurturing, creative environments for students of all skill levels, from the novice to the seasoned professional:
 
The Kweskin Studio 
Kweskin 1A
Located on the second level of our Kweskin Theatre, the Kweskin Studio is the same dimensions as the building’s main-stage. It is equipped with full-length mirrors for dance, air-conditioning, bathrooms on the same level and sound-proofing. 
Kweskin 2
The room has large windows that look out onto the Sterling Farms property.
 
The Dressing Room Theatre (DRT) Studio
DRT 1A
While slightly smaller than our Kweskin Studio, our DRT Studio (located on the second level of Curtain Call’s Dressing Room Theatre) also provides full-length mirrors for dance, air conditioning, sound proofing and a bathroom within the studio itself. The room allows for considerable classroom privacy.
DRT 2A
