The Summer ‘Cool Theatre Program offers free professional theatre arts activities designed to stimulate young minds, offer creative approaches to thinking “outside the box,” and a forum for presenting a wide array of perspectives and cultures.  Students will learn about collaboration, acting and storytelling skills while exploring the this year’s theme, celebrating the wonder of science, and create a finale performance with full theatrical production values.  Classes take place in a professional downtown theatre, with elements of  acting, dancing and writing.  Students also attend one off-site field trip.  Nutritional snacks provided daily.

If you live in the North University Park Area (Near USC) and would like to submit your child for the program, please fill out a registration form to apply for a spot.  (Formulario de Inscripción en Español)
