Pre-professional training through theatre productions, classes, and summer camps gives students the opportunity to grow as performers and as people. Our programs are built to improve performance skills, build confidence, encourage self-expression, and inspire artistic growth. Whether you’re an experienced performer or you’ve never set foot on stage, Gulfshore Playhouse Education will prepare you for every stage in life.
Each season, we offer a range of theatre classes, camps, and performance opportunities for students at every stage. Thanks to donor support, we are able to offer financial aid for many of our programs through Kizzie’s Kids Scholarship Fund.
