Talespinner will return to the stage once state and federal officials have given the all clear to gather with others and TCT has solidified a health and safety plan for our guests and artists. Keeping everyone safe is our top priority. Thank you for your support!

Youth Theatre Arts Classes

TCT offers three in-house Youth Theatre Arts courses per year. They take place on location at TCT—a 188 seat, ADA compliant theatre located on the eastern edge of the Detroit-Shoreway area of Cleveland's near west side.

Fall and Spring classes are held on Saturdays for eight-week sessions and are broken down in appropriate age groups and scheduled as follows:
Pre-school (ages 3-5) 10am to 11am
Kids (ages 6-10) 10am to 1pm
Early Teens (ages 11-14) 10am to 1pm

Through puppets, music, movement, improvisation, story-telling and acting, students develop communication skills, teamwork, confidence, and creative expression. Each session culminates with a student-created presentation for family and friends that gives kids a taste of what goes into producing and performing a show.
