Kid's Programs

South City Theatre Welcomes New Children's Programming Director Emily Hoppe!

Acting Up is South City Theatre's youth division. We offer workshops, classes, and lessons for aspiring actors up to 18-years-old. Our 2 workshops for older children culminate in a production experience. The goal of these workshops is to guide young actors through the entire production experience, including the thrill of a curtain call. Space is limited, and all registered participants will have an active role in the production. For younger stars just beginning their theatrical journeys, we offer classes at various developmental stages.
 
Workshop (Evenings/Weekends)
Students will audition for and rehearse a fully staged one act production to be presented at the end of the semester! Everyone gets a role and has a hand in designing all the elements for the show.
