Actor Children's Theatre School at Wagner College

For over 10 years, the Actor Children’s Theatre School at Wagner College has provided quality theater education to the Staten Island community. The ACT school continually receives high praise in all program categories from parents and young actors. Give your child the opportunity to explore their inner self and express ideas through the art of drama. There are a variety of classes for aspiring actors of all ages.


While the lights are still out on Broadway, and we remain unsure of when we will be able to resume live classes and performances on the stage, we want to provide students an opportunity to join our ACT program in virtual performing arts classes. We continue to work with our seasoned ACT instructors, director, choreographer and musical director to assess if and when we can bring back our traditional ACT performance classes. Perhaps this summer, but if not, hopefully by the Fall. We will be in touch with any new ACT developments and look forward to a time when we can be together once again.

It’s All About Storytelling!

Ages 3-4

Have you ever wanted to make your favorite book come to life? At the basis of drama, lies the concept of storytelling. From classical fairy tales, to magical superheroes, to mystical talking animals, storytelling is a way to share joy and learn. In this virtual class, we will begin to explore the idea of turning books into dramatic reenactments. The whole family can get in on the fun as we create paper bag puppets, sing and dance, play theater games, and so much as we dive deeper into our favorite stories and find our own voices in the process. 

March 6 to May 15 (No class 4/3) (10 classes)

Step into the (virtual) spotlight and learn what it means to be a performer. You’ll leave this class feeling ready to take center stage!
