theatre school

The Fine Arts Center Theatre Company offers innovative and comprehensive professional theatre training programs for students ages 5-adult. Musical theatre, design, acting, play analysis, dancing, stand-up comedy, and the collaborative process are just a sampling of the rich curriculum offered by our award-winning professional staff of instructors. We believe that the development of theatrical skills is a life-long journey. We want our students to become part of the FAC family as they pursue further training in the arts.

Virtual Theatre Camps

Camps will be held virtually and will provide excellent creativity and theatrical skills time in a fun way! Personal instruction, group interaction and recorded segments will all be incorporated into this new and exciting format.

Founding Principles of the FAC Theatre School

  1. Educate students about the fundamentals of theatre
  2. Create an understanding of accountability and discipline
  3. Curate a space to dream
  4. Help students express joy, love, laughter, vulnerability and courage
  5. Teach students how to collaborate and work well with others.
  6. Create a space for like-minded students to meet, congregate and develop a sense of family.
  7. Investigate humanity. Theatre is the study of the human condition.

What can we expect from these classes?

  1. All classes will have a daily structure that your families can rely on. Meaning, the basic breakdown of the day will be the same.
  2. Each day will have new content to keep the students engaged. No day will be the same!
  3. Video content, free creating times (with the teachers still on screen) and group creation will be a part of every session.
  4. Each student will receive an Imagination Pack containing all the physical items that they will need during the camp.
  5. We will be utilizing the skill sets of all staff members at the FAC. You will leave these camps with a more comprehensive understanding of what actually happens daily at the FAC!
  6. The content will be innovative, engaging and constant.
  7. Class sizes will be small to ensure focused attention on the participants.
  8. It will be FUN!
