Our fourth year of programming contains many new twists and turns. In order to reach new students and broaden our horizons we are offering courses and workshops that tantalize and tempt the hesitant, the extroverted, the talented and the brand new students! We have developed into a program that embraces the full theatre composition. Please allow us to explain... theatre classes teach more than rudimentary skills regarding acting, voice, body and stage work. The last three years have proven repeatedly that our students reap many difficult to describe benefits from our programming, but we will attempt to elaborate using their comments. Do you sense our dilemma? We create programs that address the fundamentals of acting techniques, improvisation, movement for theatre, and early theatre. Paired with these theatrical courses are the effects upon most students of increased self-confidence, self-efficacy, bravery, social skills and happiness. We never dreamed of the incredible potential inherent within these theatre classes and we are so happy to offer these experiances to more students! We have witnessed many students gain the confidence necessary to attempt things that may frighten them, therefore, we feel our program is successful in its mission of bringing theatre to young people...everything else that happens is magic!

We firmly believe in the power of the arts to transform people of all ages, but especially children and young adults. Through our classes students learn to express what is deep inside that rarely has a chance to escape. We encourage all of our students to use their creative imaginations and expand their verbal communication skills in a safe and friendly environment. This encourages them to take chances in life that they might not otherwise take on their own. We all know that speaking and performing can be daunting challenges. We strive to assist the development of self-confidence that will bloom into self-esteem. Sending students into the world with high self–esteem gives them the best chance for pursuing life-long learning and positive relationships. ATP is a theatre program with its feet on the ground that helps students reach for the stars.
