What does your business do & what sets you apart from others in your industry?

We are a process based Theatre Education that values the individual actor. We emphasize on fun and confidence building as our actors learn about performance and human connection.

What is “super” about your business?  Why is it special?

We make sure every actor knows they are a very important part of every class, every production and every project. We pride ourselves on creating a family environment in our Garden!

If you could pick a superpower, what would it be?

Time Travel for sure!

What is one thing you have had to do to “pivot” to survive the Covid shutdown?

We began offering online theatre classes in the spring to two separate full day four week online theatre camps. Though we missed our students in person, we felt the camp was very successful. We were proud of the fact that so many campers said it felt almost like in person camp.

Name one thing you LOVE about our Chamber?

The amazing support they give to ALL of the businesses in our community.

What’s the weirdest thing you sell or offer? Or have there been any odd customer requests?

Right now we are offering Pod Learning for e-learners. Our Greenhouse is hosting 8 students who spend their days e-learning. On their breaks and after school they have the opportunity to socialize with fellow e-learners and enjoy fun theatre activities.
