The A.D. Players Theatre Arts Academy provides training for artists of all ages with a primary focus on ages 5-18.
All classes take place at our Saint Street Studio, 2613 Saint Street, Houston, Texas 77027.
The Academy specializes in nurturing the mind, body and spirit of young artists. Since 1992 we have created a range of offerings beyond our Academy classes and productions. The Theatre Arts Academy offers educational partnerships such as in-school instruction, after school programs and workshops.
Academy classes offer students a learning experience that engages their imagination with the artmaking and innovation of theatre. Ages 5–18 get hands-on education, developing skills and knowledge across various departments from rehearsal and backstage, to acting and music. These classes provide a fascinating look at the process of producing theatrical performance.
