Long Wharf’s Studio School offers classes for artists in grades K – 12 all year long! All of our programs are built upon three pillars: creativity, empathy, and teamwork. Students will learn the fundamentals of acting, devising, problem solving, and being a collaborative team member. We believe that all students regardless of experience level can learn valuable life skills through theatre.

All classes culminate with a celebratory showcase for friends and family on the last day of class in our Stage II Theatre.

STUDIO SCHOOL is sponsored by
THE FREDERICK A. DeLUCA FOUNDATION
