At Theatre Academy Productions, we strive to cultivate and instill in children a passion for theatre and the performing arts through self-exploration, teamwork, creativity, and play.
Through theatre, we empower children to explore their own potential!

We are so excited to introduce a brand-new Improvisation and Sketch Comedy program to TAP! Taught by Miss Melissa who has a background working with Improvisation and Sketch Comedy teams, the boot camp this fall is intended to prepare our students for our NEW TAP Improv Team that will launch this spring! If you're not familiar with Improvisation or Sketch Comedy, think of the classic tv shows "Whose Line is it Anyway?" and "SNL", and places like ComedyWorx in downtown Raleigh. Improvisation and Sketch Comedy are centered around "acting in-the-moment, without a script". Through a specific repertoire of games that they work to perform, actors gain a multitude of skills from creativity and characterization to thinking on the spot, reacting in the moment, and engaging and supporting their onstage partners...to learning to be bold, articulate, and confident onstage. The best improvisation actors are skilled theatre performers, so it is a fantastic skill for theatre and musical theatre actors to have in their "toolkit"!
The Improv Boot Camp this fall runs every Saturday in October from 10am-12pm (Oct. 2, 9, 16, 23, 30). The dress rehearsal is November 6 from 10am-12pm, and the Final Showcase for families at the studio is November 13 at 11am (students should arrive at 10am). Students may miss, if necessary, one of the October classes. They must be available for both November dates. *While no previous improv experience is necessary, we encourage students with all levels of experience to attend! The Boot Camp is intended to prepare students who are interested in auditioning for the spring Improv Team at TAP! Miss Melissa, who is teaching the Boot Camp, will also be leading the TAP Improv Team in the spring. *As always, our TAP COVID-19 protocol will be in place for the Boot Camp which includes masks for all students and staff, temperature checks at the door, and frequent sanitizing and disinfecting. The cost is $200. Click HERE to register.
*For students in 1st through 4th grades*
What’s a story without characters? Simply put, characters determine and influence the plot, and therefore affect story development. In this workshop, students will explore what it means to create a character and discover how actors bring these roles to life onstage. Ideal for younger or inexperienced actors, this workshop will cover the basics of acting, theatre, and storytelling! Click HERE to register.
*For students in 5th through 9th grades*
Creativity is a powerful tool and catalyst in times of great change. Through song and dance, students will explore the history of musical theatre and how the art form has changed alongside society.
