Saturday Acting Classes

Registration for Spring 2018 Acting Classes has closed




The Atlanta Shakespeare Company Education Department is thrilled to announce that we will again be offering Saturday Acting classes in February 2019! Classes will take place in our brand-new Shakespeare Academy classroom space located right next door to the Playhouse at 497 Peachtree Street NE.

Young actors ages four through thirteen will have the chance to be taught and directed by our team of professional Teaching Artists each Saturday for 6-week long class sessions. Each session will culminate in a final showcase for invited friends and family members.

Here’s a sneak peek as to what will be available once our renovations have been completed:
