Ophelia’s Jump offers a variety of workshops and classes for both adults and younger performers!
Our Educational programs’ focus is formative rather than performative with the overall goal of engendering a well-rounded knowledge and love for theatre in a supportive, enriching, and fun environment. Since this is theatre, the learning journey will end in a culminating performance in which the participants will get to apply their learning.
Ophelia’s Jump is a non-profit company. All tuition and fees go towards paying teachers, royalties, and other direct production costs. Please help us to keep tuition as low as possible and to provide need-based scholarships by making a tax-deductible contribution today.
