Middle School Ensemble

Our middle school ensemble works on complex material and relishes a challenge. From Greek Myths to Shakespearean Histories to classics of American Theater, we love a great play. Students inspire each other and do work that is brave, specific and nuanced.

Class culminates in a live performance on the last day – Sunday, January 28.
There will be a dress rehearsal on Saturday, January 27.

“This is the best theater group for kids in NYC. The team is knowledgeable and creative, and produce wonderful plays with children. They are also amazing at building community with the students—along with acting/theater skills. My daughter has been part of Child's Play classes for almost 8 years, now. The students are very close and kind/supportive to each other, rejoicing in each other's triumphs. Best extracurricular in my teenager's life so far.”
