Play On! Spring Break Classes for Young Theatre Artists
2020 Information Coming Soon
Juneau Spring Break Classes: UPDATE
In light of all that is transpiring with COVID-19 and in an effort to keep everyone safe and healthy, we are transitioning our spring break camp programs to an online platform. Your students signed up for our Creative Drama and Theatre Makers programs will still have opportunities to gain new theatre skills and engage with each other and with our incredible teaching artists. In the coming days, we will send thorough instructions on how to log in and be a part of our online classrooms!
Unfortunately, we are postponing our two free teen programs. Our instructors have worked hard on creating two really wonderful programs, and we are truly excited to share them with you in better times; please watch for those to be offered sometime in the summer or fall.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions! Thank you for your patience and support as we all tackle this global health crisis together.
