A positive & creative outlet

Builds confidence & self-esteem

Every child is included equally

In drama classes, it can be hard to feel confident that your kid will always have an equal part to play

  • You need to funnel your child’s DRAMATIC energy, so you need them to get a part they actually love
  • Your child tries out for plays, but never gets a good part
  • Sometimes it can take several seasons before your child gets a speaking part

  • They want advanced help with auditions for plays or commercials, but don’t know where to go
  • You pay for drama classes, but your child is lost in the back of the stage
  • Your child is shy and wants to speak confidently, but they need someone to help them shine

How are our acting classes different?

At the Theatre of the Imagination, we know that you want to be a parent who empowers their kids to express themselves and their flair for the dramatic. In order to do that, you need to find a creative outlet that helps them grow in their acting skills whether they’re just beginners or advanced.

The problem is it may be hard to find an outlet that gives them personalized attention, and is flexible enough to fit their specific skill set. We believe that every child should have equal parts on stage, no matter where they are in their acting journey. We understand what it feels like to be cast as the 3rd Christmas Tree from the left, which is why we have spent 30 years teaching and giving all kids equal opportunities to grow their confidence through acting.

Here’s how to get your child involved in our classes:

  1. Check the schedule: Find drama classes, camps, or local workshops that work for you
  2. Contact Mr. Miles: Reach out if you want to ask questions or tell us more about your child, we love hearing details that help us match their needs in class. Call Mr. Miles at 816-561-2787
  3. Sign up for classes: Watch them grow in their acting skills and boost their confidence

So, sign up for acting classes now. And in the meantime, sign up for our free Download, “Five Steps to Help Your Child Get Their First Professional Acting Job”.
