Acting A to Z will explore the art of acting and cover everything from stage directions to interactive improvisation and theater games to scene study. Its nine-week session runs from 5 to 6 p.m. Tuesdays, starting Sept. 17.

Musical Theater Workshop classes provide an opportunity to develop skill as a vocalist and dancer while working on numbers from popular Broadway and movie musicals. Classes will be held for children in kindergarten through second grade from 5 to 6 p.m. on Tuesdays or Thursdays, third- through sixth-graders from 6 to 7 p.m. on Wednesdays or Thursdays and seventh- through 12th-graders from 6 to 7 p.m. Tuesdays.
