TYKEs Academy

Brand new TYKEs Academy classes begin the week of September 25th! 

For our thespians ages 8 and up:

The Mystery of Theatre

Mondays, 4-5:30 pm

September 25 to December 18

We’ll work together to brainstorm crazy, clever ideas as we create our own unique – and of course hilarious – play with a brand new theme... This show will be a mystery whodunit, and our students will devise their own characters, plot, “mysterious event” and setting. We’ll also play one new theater game during every class – never the same game twice! On the last day of class at 5 p.m., we’ll perform our original mystery show for parents, siblings and friends! A fantastic way to make friends and have fun while building creativity, reading and writing skills, self-confidence and of course... performing!

$175 (JCC members: $150)

Please note: no class on: October 9 (Columbus Day) and November 20 (Thanksgiving week)


For ages 5 to 8:


Thursdays, 4-5 pm

September 28 to December 21

If you enjoyed our Improv FUN-damentals with a Twist class, you’ll LOVE this super new class! We’ll keep kids active, engaged and moving to the music as we learn the “Supercalifragilistic” song from Mary Poppins – complete with lots of movement. We’ll present an exuberant on-stage performance for parents and siblings to enjoy at the end of our final class... including our own hand-made crafts “accessories.” Plus, we’ll play one fun and developmentally appropriate theater game during each class. It’s music, movement, theater and crafts all rolled into one! This program takes place in a supportive, no-pressure theater setting that boosts self-esteem by encouraging kids to be brave while having fun. No prior on-stage experience needed.

$175 (JCC members: $150)

Please note: no class on: November 23 (Thanksgiving)
