Columbiana Acting Studio 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 studio offers many different types of classes that encompass the entire stage and screen repertoire.

Stage Combat Class

A "Triple Threat" performer is a performer who can Act, Sing and Dance. "Triple Threat" performers are multi-talented and well rounded performers who have generally had years of education and performing experience in Acting, Dancing, and Singing. When they audition for roles in plays, they have the competitive advantage because they are so versatile and their skills add so much more to the overall production. Directors like to cast "Triple Threat Performers". Actors who cannot sing or dance are what we call "straight" actors and are limited in the roles they can audition for. Dancers who cannot act or sing are usually put in the "Chorus Line" or dance ensemble.
