Triple Threat Workshop is designed to help kids learn about theatre through a series of workshops and productions held throughout the year. Using acting as the base of our training students explore other art forms such as singing, dancing, movement, stage makeup, stage combat, improvisation, scene work, scene into song, etc. Through these workshops, as well as productions, our "Rising Stars" (Ages 7-13) and "Triple Threat Teens" (Ages 13-18) learn more about themselves, build upon their existing skills, and become more well rounded performers in a safe, positive, and creative learning environment.
We have recently expanded to adult productions as well and look forward to meeting and working with all the talent South Jersey has to offer.
Our motto: FUN. DISCOVERY. PLAY.
