At Globe Theatre School, students leave their fears at the door and step into the bold and bright world of their own creative potential.

We encourage our youngest students to indulge in imaginative play and pretend. New artistic muscles grow and develop as they transition into our collective creation core programs, which are designed to build collaborative abilities and spark creative expression.

As their focus shifts to technical theatre and performance, our teen programming provides students with the necessary foundation to confidently write, act, and improvise in a positive group environment.

Teenagers are offered the opportunity to perform in professional settings and challenge themselves in new and exciting ways.
