Journey Theater Classes

Where kids begin to blossom!

Journey’s professional teachers are ready to cheer for and mentor your child, no matter their level of experience in theater.  Whether a child is an athlete, an artist, a musician, or a book-worm.  Whether they like to work with their hands, feet, mind, voice or body, Journey is where they will be welcomed with open arms.

Every session (fall, winter and spring) we offer 10-week theater arts classes to children & youth ages 6 – 18. These two hour evening classes are held once a week in four areas throughout the metropolitan region.

Enroll in a class and you will create memories for a lifetime! We offer classes in drama, music, dance, technical theater and so much more.

(Classes and locations subject to change)

Beaverton Portland 2016-17 Proposed Classes Update
proposed-2016-17-vancouver-update

Enrolled students, ages 8 – 18, have the opportunity to audition for a Journey Broadway-style musical! Younger students may serve as helpers at our shows, and students ages 10 and up may work on a backstage crew.

Classes are held once a week for two hours, and run for ten consecutive weeks. During the tenth class week, a showcase is presented in which each class performs a brief prepared presentation, showcasing what they have learned over the session. Every student participates in the showcase. Classes are a great way for students to gain valuable theater arts training, develop confidence and make life-long friends!

Do I have to be in a class to be in a show?

Yes!  Our high energy classes are taught by highly qualified individuals who will help you gain the skills you need to perform to your highest potential on the stage. Students are expected to attend all classes for the full two hours.  Students can miss up to 2 classes; more than 2 absences will likely impact Showcase participation.  More than 3 absences means the class will not be added to the student’s transcript and may impact their ability to be involved in a show.

Which area do I have to take a class in?

All students are eligible to take classes in any of our areas.

Can I take Classes in one area and audition in another?

No, you must audition in the area you are taking classes in for that session.  The exception to this is Vancouver and Vancouver East.  You may take a class in Vancouver, and audition for the Vancouver East show, and vice versa.

Our Dress Code

We expects students to dress modestly and appropriately, in a way that promotes a healthy environment and eliminates distractions. Download the Dress Code sheet to see our “No Bare Zone” graphic.

Overly tight or revealing clothing is not acceptable.

Midriffs must be covered, even when arms are raised or when seated.

Undergarments are not to be visible or exposed.

Class Guidelines

Respect for teachers, staff, parents, and other students is expected at all times.

Honoring language will be used. Name-calling, profanity and/or inappropriate actions will not be tolerated.

Students’ conduct will be respectful of property, and therefore, any damage done to property will be replaced or repaired by the student.

We expect purity of self in relationships with others and one’s own body; therefore, drugs, alcohol or smoking are strictly prohibited. Overt physical contact between students is inappropriate at our activities.

Students who are cast in a production are required to attend their class for the entire 10-week session, including Showcase on the last day of class.

Not just live theater - theater that changes lives.
