2021-2022 Theatre Classes

Gulfshore Playhouse Education is thrilled to offer theatre classes this fall that will develop performance skills while encouraging personal growth. Learn directly from professional teaching artists while gaining experience, no matter your experience level. Children 8-18 will perform the beloved musical Annie, adults can participate in our Frank Sinatra themed tap class, and teens 13-18 can act in the hilarious whodunit Clue.

Students will learn about acting, singing, and dancing on the stage through performance. These theatre camps are a great opportunity to gain self-confidence, reconnect with peers, and sharpen skills in the performing arts. Need-based scholarships are available through the Kizzie’s Kids Scholarship Fund!

Gulfshore Playhouse is committed to fostering Education programs that reflect the diverse population of Collier County. People from underrepresented groups and diverse backgrounds with any level of acting experience are encouraged to participate.

Kizzie’s Kids Scholarship Fund

Gulfshore Playhouse Education firmly believes that cost should not be a bar to participation. Named in honor of the beloved, late fur family member of philanthropists Patty and Jay Baker, the Kizzie’s Kids Scholarship Fund enables all students to participate in our theatre programs.

Kizzie’s Kids is funded through gifts from generous donors and other grants-based programs. Needs-based scholarships are available to students for after-school and summer programs. Kizzie’s Kids scholarship applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Please note that acceptance of a scholarship does not guarantee program placement.
