STUDENTS CAN SPEND FEBRUARY VACATION ON STAGE WITH LONG WHARF THEATRE’S STUDIO SCHOOL

Long Wharf Theatre announces an exciting slate of winter Studio School classes, beginning in February.

Students, from elementary through high school, will have the opportunity to learn improvisation, hone their language skills and tackle the beautiful language of William Shakespeare. Classes run from Feb. 21 through the 25th. Classes cost between $150-$195.

“Any parent looking for a fun and creative activity for their students during that week away from school should check us out!  We’ll be expanding upon the series of classes we offered in the fall, though you did not necessary need to take those classes to participate in our winter series.  Our classes are fun, safe and an easy way for students of all ages to explore and tap into their hidden acting talents,” said Annie DiMartino, director of education.

Classes are limited to 10 students per session.
