Classes at the Theater

Classes at the Theater

In response to the needs of our community due to COVID-19, we are offering more options so that essential workers have a safe place where their children can go and so that kids have a safe, creative, FUN outlet during this difficult time. Our offerings are for ages 4 – 18.

In addition to our regular Core Skills Classes, we’re introducing:

*a new on-site learning lab where children can receive support with online schooling and have breaks to play theater games and more

*Drama Day Fridays, special after-school fun on Fridays

*Pod Classes: our teachers come to your neighborhood for your children and their close friends to have theater/dance/stagecraft mini-camps!

*Rehearsal & Performance Classes: we’re bringing back our R&P’s where children get to do a full play!

INSPIRE: MST Learning Lab

2540 Times Blvd, Houston, TX 77005

1st – 5th grade students (additional grade levels accepted on a case by case basis)

INSPIRE was created to provide a safe place for kids to work on virtual schoolwork guided and mentored by a professional staff of teaching artists. In addition, we offer safe opportunities to play games, socialize, and participate in theater and arts activities, as in our popular summer camps.

We provide support to families while the schools are operating online. Our college-educated, fun, compassionate, reliable, and committed staff will monitor the children while they do their school work, assist with technical issues, help keep them focused, accountable, and prepared, and provide homework assistance as they are able to and is appropriate.
