Classes and Workshops

Students – children and adults alike – come through our doors with their own reasons for attending an acting class. Some want to enhance their acting training and technique, some want to gain confidence in their skills, some want to meet people with similar interests, some just want to try something new.

No matter the reason, students of all ages and experience levels are welcome at QCT. Here they will find classes taught by trained theatre professionals, as well as a safe space to explore and deepen their understanding of the performing arts.
