Parker Theatre Academy offers personalized acting training to all ages of students. The first eight weeks focus on individualized performance and audition skills. The second eight weeks focus on rehearsal for a showcase held in April for family and friends. Students may join classes monthly but are encouraged to be involved the entire semester as each class builds on the skills learned during the previous class. We emphasize quadruple threat by focusing on acting for the stage, dancing and singing for musical theater, and improvisation.
