Pied Piper Theatre

Pied Piper Theatre

The Center for the Arts’ nationally recognized Pied Piper Theatre (PPT), welcomes young people ages 8 through 18 to explore the world of theatre both on the stage and behind the curtain. Offering three fully staged musical presentations a year, this award-winning children’s theatre provides dramatic and musical theatre training while building confidence, responsibility, and self-esteem.


Beat summer boredom by signing your child up for one of our exciting theatre camps! We have a range of camps and classes for our youngest actors all the way up to adults. Each camp and class will help build on the basic skills of acting such as scene study, movement, improvisation, and audition basics. Not a fan of being on stage? We have a variety of technical classes to help you learn what goes on behind the curtain.
