The School provides training that enables students to pursue professional careers in theater, film and television; and provides engaging and entertaining learning opportunities for youth, seniors and adults that enable them to experience theater, and to recognize its relevance to their lives.
Circle in the Square Theatre School started offering acting classes in 1961 and has trained more than 5,000 actors since that time. The School is accredited by NAST (The National Association of Schools of Theater).
The School prepares up to 100 young adult actors and musical theater performers annually with two-year Professional Workshops and a seven-week Summer Workshop. Our faculty offers an eclectic mix of techniques that have proven effective in developing the potential within each student.
The School utilizes the talent it develops through an Outreach Program that serves schools and senior citizens from throughout the city. The School offers ‘Plays for Grades K-6’, ‘Play Series for Adults’, and a ‘Playmaking Residency’ at PS 11.
