Boys will be boys.

Our courses teach beginning to advanced theatre arts while promoting teamwork and cooperation. Every actor is allowed to develop at their personal pace in a supportive and encouraging environment. The final class is an informal performance, normally at The Baby Grand Theatre, with an invited audience of family and friends.

Our Technical Theatre class for 13-17 year-olds is for those young artists who want to explore and develop skills for use behind the scenes. We will be learning the gamut of backstage work and design over the three terms in the class. Design work includes lighting, set, costuming, and sound; technical work includes costume repair, redesign and creation (including how to use a sewing machine), how to program and operate various sound and lighting boards, types of lamps and their potential uses, use of tools and painting techniques in set and prop creation, and techniques for effective and efficient Stage Management. This class will be given opportunities to use their skills in public performances during our regular season.

Our Singing for Musical Theatre class for 9-16 year-olds takes a group approach to vocal technique for singing in musicals. SIngers learn correct technique for singing with an emphasis on musical theatre style. The group work may include harmonies in chorus work for musical theatre pieces. There is no audition required for the class, however,any boys who are interested need to be aware that the class is for boys with unbroken voices. If you are interested in a course like this, but have mature voice, please email Anne Marie. If there is enough interest from mature voices (males) it may be possible to add a class just for the gents.

Little Stars, and Stage Right classes are grouped by age, and the class duration is set accordingly. All levels of ability are represented in the class, much like you would find in a community theatre production. We believe that the way to learn is through experience by participating at your level of comfort. Acting coach Hannah Smith is a sought-after theatre and musical theatre performer.

Our Musical Theatre class for 9-14 year-olds is a popular class that encompasses rehearsals and a performance run for a fully supported musical theatre show.Visit the Musical Theatre class page for details, including show title and dates. Performances are at The Baby Grand Theatre.Find out more!

Adult Acting Classes and workshops are offered from time-to-time. We always have interest from adults, but their busy schedules mean that it is challenging to find a time that works for all. If you are interested in acting training for adults (raw beginner to experienced actor), please ask to be added to our newsletter mailing list. We will keep you informed about what is happening!

We value achievement and personal enrichment in our acting classes. Our program sets the student up to succeed while allowing that failure is a normal part of learning. "Try, try again" brings success. This is not art therapy; we aim to develop performance-oriented acting skills so that audiences are entertained. We can't help it that these skills serve people well in many more aspects of their lives - but we're fine with that!

Anne Marie Mortensen and Charles Robertson have been teaching acting to children, as Bottle Tree Productions since 2006, and as freelancers well before that. They oversee all programming for the acting school, and they invest in quality instructors and scripts, professional venues, and main stage shows that support the talent in the classes.
