6th Street Playhouse is committed to offering a School of Drama that benefits our community through classes - for all ages and all levels of experience - that support the fundamental aspects of a healthy society which acknowledges our humanity: connection, discovery, expression, and voice. We work to create a learning environment that honors our shared experiences and celebrates our differences, making the School of Drama a theatrical community where expression liberates, judgment dissolves, and we all grow through exploration of the human condition.Our youth classes are designed to foster an interest in the theater arts among young participants, whether they will become Broadway stars or future patrons. We aim to allow these little voices to sound big in our world, to deepen connections between family members and communities, and to provide tools for self expression.
Our teen classes are designed to support and foster the development of young artists. The School of Drama is a place where young people can acknowledge and understand their complicated worlds through self awareness and a deepened connection with their peers, while developing tools for confidence and problem solving.
Whether participants are new to the stage or seasoned performers or playwrights, our classes for adults provide a place to explore, strengthen skills, and grow as artists and people. Our classes for seniors are designed to help transform attitudes toward aging to a new vision of continuous growth, and to honor and celebrate the sharing of rich and varied experiences of older adults.The array of classes offered in Fall 2014 reflect an expansion of our educational programming. We hope you’ll join us as we grow and learn together!
