No, indeed. The Sunset Playhouse offers a wide variety of performing arts classes for all ages and all interest levels taught by the area’s top professional teaching artists. Your only requirement is an openness to learning and having fun!

We offer weekly sessions throughout the year for children ages 2+ : fall and winter. We also offer JR/KIDS Musical opportunities for students enrolled in grades 2 – 5 and 6 – 10 during our Fall and Winter Sessions.  Our summer JR Musical audition series started in the summer of 2022 and we love providing this summer full performance opportunity.  Speaking of summer, our robust summer camps programming offers half day camps, full day camps and full performance camps.  We can also provide classes and workshops at your school, community group, or other off-site location throughout the year.

All our classes take place at our beautiful theater facility in the heart of Elm Grove at 700 Wall Street (it’s also proudly called ‘Honorary Sunset Playhouse Way’, which we’re tickled about). We provide a safe, fun environment for learning that is intended to give participants firsthand knowledge of the nuts and bolts of theater arts and a foundation for a lifelong appreciation of the arts.

Yes. In order to keep our class price at a minimum, we require at least six students be enrolled in a session class and 25 for our JR Musical and 15 for our KIDS Musical. So tell your family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers about The Sunset!

Respect, cooperation and commitment are the foundations for the experience we cherish at The Sunset Playhouse. We nurture self-confidence, encourage collaboration, and value each student who participates in our programs as a unique individual. Did we also mention that we like to laugh? Because we do!

Anything else I should know?

The Sunset Playhouse School for The Arts also produces a winning Children’s Theater series called bug in a rug, an interactive theater experience for the whole family targeted for children ages 2-8, (younger siblings are welcome, too).
