Theatre Classes

As with all Allegro programs, our desire is to offer quality instruction to students of all ages. Our theatre instruction is designed to provide students training to lead to solid skills on the theatre stage and in life. For students of school age the instruction will meet the Virginia Standards of Learning. For adults it will provide skills for the theatre and will also spill over into the workplace.

Our Young Performers class participants are encouraged to audition for the Allegro Community Players (ACP) which is our audition performance group. Being in a Young Performers class does not give the student an automatic place in ACP.  A role in a stage performance with ACP is an earned position.
