The Theatre Arts Division of CCM Preparatory and Community Engagement offers classes and programs that teach the essential skills necessary for students interested in acting and musical theatre.  As an accredited school for theatre, CCM Preparatory adheres to the highest standards for theatre education. Faculty follow a curriculum that introduces core skills at the preschool level and building upon these skills as students progress through the levels.

Our youngest students begin in a rich multi-arts environment learning through sounds, movement and words in the spirit of playfulness. At age seven students continue in a multi-arts program with the addition of performance opportunities. By middle school, students make a decision to follow an acting track or musical theatre track. CCM Preparatory has some of the finest and most experience faculty in the area in both acting and musical theatre.

Acting classes emphasize basic skills including improvisation, characterization, movement, vocal production, script analysis and scene study. The musical theatre program requires students to take training in acting, singing and dance.  

Private acting lessons, including audition preparation and coaching for performances, also are available from our theatre arts faculty. Director of Education, Amy Dennison, can discuss options that best suit students’ interests and abilities.
