Summer Theater Workshops

Plant a seed and watch it grow...sing, move, act, create!

At TCAN, arts education is our priority - but your children will only know they're having fun! Kids build funky people structures, paint daffodils and breathe life into classic kid’s stories - acting, dancing, and singing their way through a fun-filled season. By selecting from a variety of sessions, your child can choose what they want to do, and you get the guarantee of a rewarding and fun arts experience. Single week vacation workshops are offered during the summer school vacation weeks for children pre-school through teens, with half-day and full-day* sessions held weekdays from 9:00am - 3:00pm (see class list for specific workshop programs, descriptions and schedule).
