Our performance companies bring together young artists with prior experience and a passion for theatre.
The Teen Performance Company is our pre-professional program for high school students. It culminates in a fully realized production of a world premiere that is directed, designed, stage managed, and acted by students, all working with professional mentors in the field.
The Roundlings is our pre-professional program for students interested in developing their skills in improvisation and stand-up. The Roundlings perform in repertory with the Teen Performance Company.
The Profoundlings is a developmental program for the next generation of funny artists and prepares students for the Roundlings or similar performance opportunities.

Make a film! This class will film and edit Brief Interviews with Internet Cats by Patrick Greene into a fun short piece to share with family and friends. In this fast-paced series of hilarious scenes, celebrity interviewer Ian uncovers the story behind Tuffy's first dramatic foray into a cardboard box, learns just what makes Nelson the Grouchy Cat so very, very grouchy, and contends with the diva-like antics of Kitty Boo Boo and her entourage. This is a perfect project for students experienced in theatre to explore the process of filming and editing.
