The Young Actor Musical Theatre Preparatory Program gives older elementary and middle school students theatre instruction in a comfortable and professional setting. Students have daily classes in acting, music, and movement, plus rehearsals for their final showcase, which will feature them in all three disciplines. Students also have opportunities to develop and perform their own pieces. The faculty for this program includes Dawn Loveland, Kevin Barlowski, and Hillary Ekwall. Students also participate in master classes with visiting Broadway artists, including Janelle Robinson (Mary Poppins, Oklahoma, Show Boat) and Joel Newsome (The Producers, 42nd Street). They will also have a chance to learn from the cast of the Playhouse on Park summer musical, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Upon completing the program, students should have the skills to create a compelling and engaging musical theatre performance.

Students are generally grouped by grade level to focus on age appropriate acting techniques, and each session ends with a final student showcase. For grades K-2, there is the Creative Kids program, which introduces young children to acting with creative play. Exercises and games will focus on acting, story telling, puppetry, music, and movement. A craft and story will often be included. By the end of the class, students should be using their bodies and voices to start to create characters. Grades 3-5 have the Young Actors program, where students gain more comfort portraying a character onstage. Topics will include basic scene work, story telling, puppetry, music, and movement. The instructor for these programs is Dawn Loveland, the Playhouse's Director of Education. Registration is required; class size is limited and will be first-come, first-served.
