Theatre Aspen Education’s middle and high school programming emphasizes the power of peer collaboration while building confidence. We offer after-school classes in dance, acting techniques, audition preparation, and more!


Additionally, students may audition for six fully-staged, professionally designed productions each year. We strive to expose our students to all aspects of the theatre and believe that the arts are a powerful tool that can transfer to many other areas of life.


Students also have opportunities to volunteer backstage or as teaching assistants in our elementary classes.

Middle School Playwriting: Hero’s Journey (Grades 5-8)

Ignite your creativity and imagination as we put pen to paper in this all new playwriting class. We’ll learn the fundamentals of playwriting, such as structure, plot, character development, and dialogue, and explore how these fundamentals can create iconic heroes and epic journeys.


Taught by Brittany Welch


April 11th – June 6th | Tuesdays 4:30-6pm | Aspen Middle School Theatre/Choir Room

Musical Theatre Dance: Performance (Grades 7-12)

Bring together every element of musical theatre dance you know in this performance focused class. We’ll build our skills through daily technique training, putting our progress to use in a fully staged and choreographed performance of “Live In Living Color” from Catch Me If You Can. No stone will be left unturned – technique, performance, and storytelling will all be in the spotlight when we take the stage for friends and family with our number on the final day of class.


Taught by Vanessa Strahan
