Theater workshops, at the very least, can help develop public speaking and social interaction skills in children and teenagers. Of course, those with natural-born talent or confidence can hone their acting and singing skills.

Some groups offer workshops for those who would rather learn backstage disciplines such as stage management.
Here is a listing of workshops organized by established theater groups.
Please call respective groups to confirm details. Please note that:
– total number of sessions differ across the groups; schedules vary, though most groups hold every-other-day schedule
– tuition fees may not include recital fees
– workshop venue may differ from office address
– recital venue may differ from workshop venue
– discounts and scholarships may possibly be (but not always) available if you qualify
