GREETINGS from the NEPTUNE THEATRE SCHOOL

I am so excited to be sharing what we have in store at Neptune Theatre School in 2018-19.

Last season, we introduced new programming with activities for everyone including Drop-Ins, Intensives for Adults, and classes for Theatre Tots as young as 18 months. These programs will continue this season along with our pre-professional training Prep Program, YPCo and YAC Boot Camps, March Break and Summer Camps - back by popular demand, and our incredible professional Masterclasses taught by guests from Neptune productions.

And of course, the School Tour and Young Company will wow audiences with their amazing productions, including YPCo's fall production of Les Miserables: School Edition! It's going to be a big year and I hope you're join us.
