Theatre Classes: Find Your Character!

Trike Academy hosts year-round learning fun for ages 4-18. Join our theatre classes in the Fall and Spring, plus performance and adventure camps in the Summer — no experience needed for either.

Theatre scholarships ensure everyone’s welcome!

Based on need, Gwen Edwards Memorial Scholarships award up to 80% in tuition waivers. But space in these acting classes for kids is limited and so are the funds. So, the earlier you apply the better.

Children’s Theatre Classes

Trike Academy theatre classes are like fun camps — just weekly hour-long indoor camps! And we’ve seen that having fun doing theatre is the best way to learn. Ever! Register today to ensure your space.

Creative Players: Where the wild things are

Ages 4-6

Exploring characters through movement and play, this class introduces young artists to theatre and to that primary acting ‘instrument’, their body. Activities include storytelling, games, crafts, and Trike’s signature end-of-semester “show and share” for families.

Storytellers: Where the wild things are

Ages 6-8

Take Creative Players and add storytelling with scripts and voice work. Exploring characters through creative play and movement, this class introduces students to theatre and their acting ‘instrument’, the body. Activities include storytelling, games, crafts, and Trike’s family “show and share” finale.

Tech Theatre

Ages 10-18

This introduction to the technical sides of theatre productions complements and assists the 12-week production class for 5th–12th graders. Skills include set, props, lighting, and sound-design and construction.

Children’s Theatre Camps

Trike Academy theatre camps are like extended theatre classes but with whole weeks of fun. But Trike’s camps fill up faster than a kid’s summer goes by. Register early.

Private One-on-One or Group Lessons

Whether you’re shy, or truly dedicated or just really really busy, private lessons are a spectacular way to learn — available every Fall and Spring.

Look for Trike in the Community

Trike Theatre doesn’t just take its shows on the road. We offer classes around Northwest Arkansas, partnering with other local arts groups. So, maybe it’s more convenient for you to send your young artist to one of these other locations. Just like back at Trike HQ, these partner classes fill up fast. Register early.
