Playmakers After School

Unlike our evening classes on the LSU campus, Playmakers After School offers students the opportunity to participate in theatre right at their own school! In this program, students rehearse and perform a play or musical chosen by our Teaching Artists. Students will explore the basic principles of acting, learn to focus creativity, and work together as an ensemble to create something that is their own.

How it works:

Teaching Artists meet students at school for an hour and a half one day a week for 11 sessions plus one performance. Meetings will be held in your school’s auditorium, activity room, or multi-purpose area. The program is currently designed for groups of up to 40 middle school students (5th-8th grade). All Teaching Artists are theatre professionals who have up-to-date criminal background checks.
