Essex Youth Theater Performing Arts Program Lets Every Child Shine.

As a theater arts school for young people, our specialized program uses custom-written scripts to guarantee equal roles for every student. Our performing arts and acting class size is kept small, with individual attention given to each child. Every semester culminates in a full-scale musical production.

Each class incorporates acting exercises, theater games, and improvisation to help students express their creativity and develop dramatic skills.

Essex Youth offers an atmosphere of fun learning, where self-esteem and confidence are our primary emphasis. We provide a nurturing caring environment where every child blossoms and experiences joy through performing and acting.

Classes Held 3 semesters throughout the year

  • Fall Semester: September-December
  • Winter/Spring Semester: January-April
