RedEd provides enriching, exciting, and engaging theater camps and classes for students of all ages and abilities throughout the year. Students work in community with professional actors, designers, teaching artists, choreographers, and more visiting artists from across the region and nationally to develop the skills to succeed both on and off the stage
Little Actors is perfect for the young student looking to explore creativity and experiment with performing. This series introduces students to drama, dance, and music while learning the foundations of being on stage. Taught by specialized instructors, these classes culminate in a staged performance to share with family and friends during the final session.
