2024 – 2025 Program Information

We’ve added a NEW Acing I class for adults!

The Dallas Theater provides full classes as well as one day workshops for students looking to further their skills in theatre. We offer programs for ages 8 to Adult and our offerings are on a rotating basis.

Our current class offerings and schedule are listed below.

Looking for one day workshops for ages 8 to adult?

Acting I

Ages 8-12 and 13-17

Acting I is a 5 week, 10 class course aimed at introducing students to acting basics and building a strong acting foundation. Both age groups will work in-depth in the areas of movement and space, character development, focus and concentration, and listening and reacting.

The class will culminate in a group showcase of monologues and scenes.

Once an actor completes Acting 1 they will be eligible to take Acting II. Acting II expands upon Acting 1, offering a deeper understanding of acting techniques and audition etiquette.

All classes are non-refundable unless canceled by the Dallas Theater.

The next course, Acting II (also 5 weeks/10 classes), is open to any student who has completed Acting I, been in a Main Street Players production, or has multiple years of camp experience. This class will build on the basic foundation they already have, go more in-depth with various acting methods and script analysis and learn more about creating life-like, nuanced characters through timing, tone, and body language.

Acting II also focuses on proper audition etiquette. Both classes offer workshops ranging from improv to mock auditions featuring guest instructors which ensure a well-rounded acting experience. Each class session culminates into a showcase of scenes and/or monologues allowing students to show the skills they’ve learned in front of an audience.

All classes are non-refundable unless canceled by the Dallas Theater.

Our most requested class is here! This low-commitment 6 class and a showcase offering is perfect for those who took A Taste of Acting last year or for anyone 18 and older who want to learn the basics of acting.  Each class is 3 hours long so there will be plenty of stage time for everyone and all skill levels are welcome-even if you have never been on stage before! 

The class will culminate in a showcase of either short scenes and monologues or a small play and will be free for friends and family to attend! Come meet new people and learn in Acting I for adults!
