Columbiana Performing Arts Theater Department offers a variety of acting classes and theater production classes for children and adults throughout the year.
Theatre training and performance teaches self-expression through improvisation, monologue, scene work, and written critique. Students will learn the foundations of how to “get into character,” script reading, and stage direction, which helps to enhance memorization.
In addition to developing stage skills, theatre classes can have a positive impact off-stage. Performance in front of an audience prepares someone for public speaking and professional communication by helping them to get over “stage fright.” Ultimately, this boosts one’s confidence and gives them the tools necessary to work effectively individually or as part of a team. We’ve even coached debate teams!
Theatre classes are offered for students age five through adult, and include beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. Students will also train on the audition process for stage and screen. Our theater program is offered as a year long program. Our acting department offers many different types of classes that encompass the entire stage and screen repertoire.
