Theatre Tuscaloosa offers a full range of public workshops where professional artists can teach any theatre skill worthy of mention. Casts even receive dramaturgical support as they prepare for opening night. In fact, all volunteers involved in Theatre Tuscaloosa productions profit from close encounters with professional artists. Interested Theatre Tuscaloosa volunteers can even receive college credit for work done on productions. This is possible through programs developed with our special partner, Shelton State Community College.
The bottom line...we offer our educational outreach programs because we feel that an informed audience will be a more appreciative audience and better trained performers will move us all closer to our full potential.
Acting, auditioning, techincal theatre, and movement workshops for novice, experienced, and child/teenager/adult actors alike, are periodically offered through Theatre Tuscaloosa Academy.
