Students – children and adults alike – come through our doors with their own reasons for attending a 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.

Basic Training and Triple Threat Boot Camp are one-week intensive camps that culminate in a one-evening Showcase. These camps are held in early August.

Triple Threat Boot Camp

For Grades 5-College

We are seeking students ready for an intense week of training in singing, acting, and dancing. Intended for the serious performer, the Triple Threat Boot Camp is a week-long workshop instructing students in the musical theatre disciplines. Students are divided into age-appropriate levels, working in the mornings with professionals to learn the skills needed to become top-notch performers. In the afternoon, students implement the skills learned during the day in a rehearsal for a revue of musicals at the end of the week. Even the most experienced performer will find this camp to be invaluable! Tuition includes a t-shirt and two complimentary tickets to the showcase. 

Basic Training

For Grades 1-4

This class is designed for younger students who aspire to be part of our Triple Threat Boot Camp. Students will rotate between classes in singing, acting, and dancing in preparation for musical theatre performances. Basic Training students will perform in select scenes in the Triple Threat Boot Camp Showcase.
