2023-24 Programs

The Spark offers a unique theater arts training experience centered around mentorship. All our productions and programs operate under this unique mentorship model, where adult mentors and students collaborate closely, training, rehearsing, and performing side-by-side.

Generally, our programs are recommended for students with some previous theater experience and who are 10+ years of age. For newer students or those ages 5-9 years, we recommend our Emerging Performers Company Program.

We invite you to explore our program model page and review our student qualifications and expectations before registering. Our Spark Admin Staff is always available to provide additional information and assist in best placing your student in the program that will help them achieve their individual goals.

Workshoppers will get a chance to put together costuming, scout for locations, create their own movement, and perform or direct from behind the camera– a taste of the creative process from start to finish. The completed film will be screened at the Spark on April 5th, but the final half hour of the Wednesday workshop will include a performance demonstration for parents, friends, and fans.
