Partnership with The Urban Chalkboard! uc-logo-5

  • Infants & Toddlers
  • Programs and rates vary

For our very youngest students, we have developed a wonderful partnership with The Urban Chalkboard – a place where parents and young children can share quality time along with stimulating & fun experiences. Using clinically tested child-development techniques with real world applications, The Urban Chalkboard’s learning studios and play café concept offer a comfortable and captivating environment formerly reserved for such cities as New York, Chicago or San Francisco.  Jr. Civic will partner with the “UC” to offer story-sharing events like “Book & Boogie” as well as special events that will coincide with our Mainstage and Jr. Civic productions.

It is a place where we know your family will feel welcome.

Once upon a time…!
Utilizing elements from all the artistic disciplines (music, visual art, literature, etc…), children explore the structure of a story, develop a deeper awareness of self through traditional acting exercises for youth, and discover new ways to express creative ideas and use their imaginations. Ultimately, listening skills develop and natural instincts emerge allowing everyone to flourish and have fun in a unique environment that simultaneously promotes social interaction and individual expression.

In the event of inclement weather, the Director of Education will, in accordance with the Theatre’s policy of cancelling activities only during a declared Snow Emergency, determine whether classes will run or be cancelled. In the event of a cancellation, each student will be contacted via email or phone at the earliest possible time in order to avoid an unnecessary trip.

Civic Theatre will make every effort to make up the lost class time. In concurrence with Theatre policy, there are no refunds for class time lost due to weather. With that in mind, be assured that we will make every effort to run classes as scheduled.
