We’re thrilled to announce that enrollment is currently open for the

Fall 2022 Semester of acting classes at The Academy at SHADOWLAND STAGES

Classes are held on seven consecutive Saturdays from October 8th – November 19th, with a final showing for each class on Sunday, November 20th. Class times, appropriate ages and descriptions are below. 


To participate, students must register as soon as possible. SPACE IS LIMITED.

The total price will be $125.00 per student for the fall semester. 

The cut off for registration for the fall semester of classes / plays is October 1st. We MUST receive your registration form along with a deposit of $50.00 for each student by this date due to the limited size of each class. Enrollment is on a first-come / first-served basis. The balance of tuition will be due on the first day of class.

Two students from the same family = $225 (save $25)
Three students from the same family = $300 (save $75)

Referral Discount:
Please note there are no referral discounts offered for the fall semester.

As the Academy grows, the need for scholarships also increases as many local children cannot afford the modest tuition. To date, the program has found donors to sponsor 3 students each semester. Just 10 additional scholarships per semester would allow us to move everyone off the waiting list. 

We hope you’ll consider supporting the Academy by making a tax-deductible contribution today.
