Fall Session 

Christian Performance Theatre is excited to offer a variety of theatre classes this fall.  Students have the opportunity to become fully immersed in music theater by enrolling in our Enrollment Show/Class, Dear Edwina Jr. or focus on developing their skills in voice, dance or drama.  Classes run for ten consecutive weeks and are offered on Tuesday or Thursday evenings. During the last week of class, a high-energy showcase is presented by each class to showcase what they have learned for their friends and family.  

If you are registering for a Thursday night class, please list your 1st and 2nd choice.  Class sizes are limited and our website allows you to register for a class that may indeed be full.  Check your Class Confirmation on your family account to verify your class.

Students (ages 8-18) enrolled in a fall class are eligible to audition for our fall production of Elf the Musical! Check out the Elf show page for more information.
