Like many of you, we are staying informed about the events surrounding the global outbreak of the coronavirus. The health and safety of our staff, artists, and audiences is of utmost importance. We have decided to suspend all Education programs until further notice. A.R.T. staff will be in touch directly with parents and school group leaders regarding these changes.

A.R.T. Young Company is the brand new next step for our Kids Company program for students ages 11 to 13! Through the semester, we will create a new play with a deeper focus on ensemble-building, teamwork, and writing that expands upon our classic curriculum. Students still serve as writers and performers for a world premiere workshop performance! NOTE: This pilot program launching in Spring 2020 is currently contingent on an enrollment minimum.

Spring Break Program in acting and scriptwriting is available for students 11 to 15. Learn More

A.R.T. Kids Company, Jr. is our classic creative playmaking program for students ages 5 to 7. Each week, we start with a children’s storybook centered around a theme—which could be anything from under the sea to American folk tales—and use improv games and creative play techniques to act out the story LIVE!

A.R.T. Kids Company is an advanced ensemble theater program for students ages 8 to 10 with strong reading, writing, and teamwork skills; over the course of the semester, we will be creating a new play inspired by an upcoming A.R.T. production. The students will serve as writers AND performers for a world premiere workshop performance (would we have it any other way?)!
