CLASSES @TPH (pre K– grade 12)
Through Classes @TPH, our youngest artists (pre-K to grade 5) gain skills in  character development, storytelling, scenic design,  movement and music, and beginning camera work. Along the way, there are extra benefits in confidence building, public speaking, and team work.

For our older students (grade 6 – 12), Classes @TPH provides an innovative, process-driven approach towards film acting, screenwriting, and directing leading to an understanding of the industry as a whole. Exposure to industry professionals is part of the mix, creating real connections and deep understanding of what it means to be a filmmaker.   Gains in confidence building, public speaking, and collaboration accompany this increase in industry knowledge and technical skills.
