Our Facilities

We offer 3 spacious studios for our musical theatre students to learn and prepare for productions:

  • Studio A is 1,500 sq. ft.
  • Studio B is 1,200 sq. ft.
  • Studio C is 600 sq. ft.

All of our studios feature high ceilings, mirrored walls, and in-wall speaker systems. Studios A & B are separated by a floor-to-ceiling acoustical floating partition that allows the studios to open up into one large performance space for in-house productions complete with theatre curtains and premier theatre lighting.

Studio C is a smaller, fully-mirrored space ideal for our acting classes.

Performance Opportunities

Our unique campus offers both indoor and outdoor performance opportunities for students enrolled in our production classes. Our goal is to give students as many opportunities as possible to perform in front of an audience.

The 2,400 sq. ft. expanded studio space and 2,400 sq. ft. outdoor lawn were both specifically designed with musical theatre performances in mind.
