We here at Gamut Theatre are extremely excited about our curriculum for young actors. Classes are organized by content and by age. This means that no matter how old you are or how much experience you have we have a class for you!
Our goal is to enhance communication skills and develop self-confidence, imagination, and creativity. In doing so, we educate the student on a general knowledge of the theatre while having lots of fun! All Gamut Theatre Academy classes are held at Gamut Theatre in downtown Harrisburg and are instructed by professional actors and the Core Company of Gamut Theatre Group.
Gamut offers Spring Theatre School Classes from January through May, and Fall Theatre School classes from September through December. All classes culminate with a production performed by the students. Students must be available for final dress rehearsals and performance dates.
