Attention Student Artists in Kansas City!!
First Act Theater Arts is gearing up for its 2022-23 season of educational training and programming and BOY do they have something for EVERYONE. Combined Broadway training classes, production classes, private acting and voice studios, and dance lessons in every style you could think of, all rolled into ONE training season. First Act Theater Arts is the one stop shop for all your performing arts needs. Beyond their incredible line-up, they also offer 8 full productions this year and 3 specialized performance troupes. New this year, they’re launching a musical theater troupe for ages 10-18 like Kansas City has never seen before, it’s not a dance crew or a show choir, it’s a troupe that also focuses on the 3 disciplines.
At the helm is new Director of Education, Michelle Evans, who brings nearly 20 years of professional work in educational theater to the helm. Michelle is an Atlanta-area native and an internationally renowned professional coach (www.mjeactingstudio.com), best known as one of the co-owners and acting coach of the highly sought-after CAP: College Audition Project (www. collegeauditionproject.com). Michelle said this about First Act Theater Arts “This program really has something for everyone. We cater for students who want to have fun with their friends doing theater to students who are seriously preparing for a professional career in the performing arts. I’ll put it this way, First Act Theater Arts is where I signed up my daughter to train and audition for shows. It has the high caliber of training and the positive environment that I was looking for for my child, and it is because of this that I can warmly recommend it to other families.”
First Act Theater Arts classes are in the Lenexa and Overland Park area on the Kansas side and just across the state line in Kansas City, MO. There’s programming for ages 5-18 throughout the week and even virtual options for their private acting and singing studios. Classes are 14 weeks long (that’s a REAL workout for you guys) and are an amazing deal for the time and quality of training you receive!
Registration is OPEN NOW and fall classes begin the week of August 15, 2022.
