Learning Opportunities

Educational Outreach

The Chattanooga Theatre Centre provides drama and dance classes, workshops, and a summer academy for students of theatre arts from kindergarten through high school. Offerings range from Beginning Acting, Theatre Dance, and Improvisation to Professional Clowning, Singing for Actors, Scene Analysis, and Stage Managing. Our adjunct faculty of local theatre professionals see more than 200 students per year. Thanks to our scholarship program, many who could not otherwise attend pay nothing.

Our Education Outreach program provides free admission to dress rehearsals, low-cost educational performances, free study guides for classes attending our Youth Theatre, and workshops for teachers learning to use theatre arts as part of their daily activities.

We are Partners in Education with a local magnet school for the performing arts, work closely with the theatre department of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and offer internship opportunities for technical theatre students of Chattanooga State Technical Community College.

We are proud to provide professional opportunities for directors.
