This season, Triad Stage will be piloting a series of master classes offered by local and visiting artists who are working professionals in their field. These classes will cover a wide variety of artistic topics in performance, design, and production.
All classes are $25.00 for adults and $20.00 for students and educators - a 10% discount (must show ID). Classes are ideal for young theatre professionals, university students, and high school students (juniors and seniors) with considerable theatre experience. If you have questions about which class might be right for you, please feel free to email Learning Director Lauren Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: Space is limited in each Master Class. Register early to guarantee your spot. Master classes also have a minimum enrollment in order to occur, so please make sure to register at least 24 hours in advance. We will inform you via email 24 hours in advance of the class if it has not reached the required enrollment and therefore will need to be cancelled. If a master class is cancelled due to low enrollment, you will receive a full refund if you have already registered.
Only available by phone. Call 336-272-0160.
Practice acting, storytelling, and living in the lyric while singing-- in a very supportive and fun environment! Bring any song you know by heart – pop tune, folk song, hymn, or a traditional musical theatre song-- and focus on communicating the words while singing. No sheet music is necessary – we will sing acapella (or if you play an instrument feel free to accompany yourself!) and ALL levels are welcome and encouraged.
