PVTC Children’s Programs


At PVTC, we believe that theatre does remarkable things for each individual child. We are committed to helping every student realize their full creative potential. We celebrate diversity and offer classes to all children without exception. To that end, we have three 3 levels of acting classes for children and youth, along with writing classes, and on occasion we offer dance classes,adult workshops.
