Miners Alley is continuing to offer After School Acting Classes in 2019, along with our award winning Summer Workshops in June and July.  Each class will have a final performance to showcase what they’ve learned.  Since the classes are designed to teach the basic skills needed to perform, we want to give the kids a chance to show off what they’ve learned!  These lessons will build confidence, teamwork and listening skills, and form a firm foundation for working on the stage.
