Enroll your young actor at Civic Theatre School and unlock the transformative power of the arts!

Grow! Civic Theatre School kids don’t just learn how “to act” but gain important life skills that help them grow.  Students involved in the arts watch less TV and display more tolerant behavior towards others! Classes like those at Civic Theatre help foster positive achievement, collaborative-working and critical-thinking skills. Studies have shown that theatre classes can not only enhance creativity, but help develop skills that assist in learning languages and even mathematics.

Sensational, Sizzlin’ Summer Acting Session!

This summer give your child the ability to unlock his/her artistic potential! Civic Theatre’s Summer Acting Session is a fantastic opportunity to provide your child with the chance to grow in performance ability and enhance their confidence. But these aren’t the only benefits! Theatre education is a field that provides children with, not only the ability to engage in creative thinking, but also the critical-thinking skills useful in other disciplines (even math!). It will help your child learn how to better express what he/she is feeling and, of course, he/she will gain amazing collaborative-working skills from having to work with others!

Civic Theatre is providing children age 4 to 18 with the amazing opportunity to sign-up for ONE or BOTH of our summer sessions (for a whole summer full of fun)!

Scholarship

Civic Theatre offers The Betty T. and Bob Muir Theatre Scholarship for a limited number of need-based applicants for each of the three program sessions (Fall, Winter and Summer).   The scholarship was established in 2001 in memory of Elizabeth T. Muir, a professional actress and devoted Lehigh Valley theatregoer who appeared on the Civic stage in 1947 (in the show, The First Mrs. Frasier), and her philanthropist husband, Bob.

Application for a theatre school scholarship consists of the application form, documentation of financial need, and (2) directed essays from the potential student.
