Laguna Playhouse Youth Theatre offers acting and musical theatre classes for ages 9 – 18, as well as fully produced theatrical productions.

This program develops theatre skills 360° in acting, movement, voice, text analysis, playwriting, devised theatre and directing. Theatre professionals teach classes and productions. Students are placed in the classes based on age, skill level and where they will grow and thrive. Students audition and participate on-stage and as technical crew for the Youth Theatre Productions (3 productions/yearly). In Conservatory, they are learning the skills. In the Youth Theatre, they are applying those skills to real-life situations, working and being mentored by theatre professionals who work in Southern California.  There is no additional cost to participate in the Youth Theatre Shows for students who are actively engaged in classes.

"What the theater has done for him is tremendous. He truly is not the same child. He has self-confidence, his sense of humor is shining through, his entire personality completely came out. Our son is not all the same guy. He just started middle school and walked in there not afraid. I know this is because of the conservatory. I love both of you for this, more than words could ever say."
~ Hilary M. (Parent of Laguna Playhouse Conservatory Student)
