Perform at the TCA

Take center stage with these skill-intensive performance classes! Students will refine acting skills through the process of auditioning, rehearsing, and performing in a full-length musical. Each production s directed by profressional actors, directors, and choreographers straight off the Childsplay stage. If you're looking for a chance to shine in the spotlight and work on your acting technique, then this is the class for you! The first two weeks of rehearsals are on our main campus (CIW) and the last week is at the Tempe Center for the Arts (TCA).

Childsplay offers extended care, before and after classes, for students in full-day classes. 


MORNING SESSION:  7:30am - 9:30am:  $25/wk.; AFTERNOON SESSION:  3:30pm - 6:00pm:  $35/wk.; BOTH SESSIONS:  $50 per week
