Shaping Successful Futures through Performing arts, life building skills & leadership proficiency
The Academy Theatre, a Youth Theatre Arts Education Program, Performing Arts Curriculum & Community Arts Venue
The Adult Drama Program (ADP) is for both men and women over the age of 24 (19-23 by exception). If you have ever aspired to be on stage this is the academy for you.
The ADP is built on the philosophy of a no-pressure, absolutely social, and fun/friend-making experience. The meetings are exclusive to learning the craft of theater and acting. This program is to interact with other adults who have a hidden passion to be on stage. This program's approach has an understanding that participating adults have always wanted to participate in community theatre but have been too afraid, too shy, or too busy to actually do so.
If you have always felt that you would like to try to be on stage, but could never bring yourself to do so, you are not alone. The program is comprised of other adults who have wished for such an opportunity. Cast members are not professionals and have very little to no experience.
Rehearsals are conducted by a hands-on method and as the cast and direction begin to form, production dates are usually then set within a good lengthy timeframe. In this program, you get one-on-one interaction with the director, and rehearsals are guided at the pace level of the cast members. Our philosophy is, "The show must go on... but only if everyone is comfortable with the level of readiness."
If you are interested in this program, please fill out the application. There is a token Participation Program fee of $25 to help offset printing and royalty expenses. This program will begin Wednesday, October 4th, 2023. Meetings are once weekly on Wednesdays, 7:30 PM.
We also ask that you attend the other productions, events, and fundraisers held throughout the year in an effort to foster and promote our Academy Theatre community; of course, we will never turn down more than your participation fee as a donation. You can make a PP fee or donation from our DONATE page when you are done signing up. Thank you.
Are you ready to sign up and be subject to fun and join this life-changing adventure?
