Theatre Macon Education
Theatre Macon Education was established to provide our diverse communities with the space and opportunity to increase their knowledge of theatre arts and theatre arts relation fields. This program is designed to meet the education needs of adults and youth in our community and to provide a safe space for artists to learn and explore their interests.
Youth Artists' Academy
The Theatre Macon Youth Artists’ Academy is a five day summer intensive focused on theatre education held at Theatre Macon. Attendees take classes in acting, singing, and dancing with the opportunity to study other theatrical art forms such as puppetry, scriptwriting, stage combat and more. The week ends in a culminating showcase of performances and activities learned throughout the week which puts the emphasis on celebrating learning and education. The price for the intensive is $175.
This year, we will be taking safety precautions against Covid-19 and will be sanitizing, wearing masks, and social distancing throughout the 2021 Academy. Additionally, we will have to cap our registrations at 80 participants. Registration opens Tuesday, March 23 at 10:00am. To register, go to our Box Office page.
