Fairmount Center - Theatre

We love to see people shine on stage.

The Fairmount Center Theatre Classes

The Fairmount Center theatre classes introduce students to the world of theatre and acting in a supportive, fun environment. New classes and workshops are offered each session. Be sure to check back often for any new workshops we put on our schedule!

We are also home to the Fairmount Youth Theatre. This long-standing program provides children ages 7-14 years a creative outlet and opportunity to take part in a community show. Many alumni from the Fairmount Youth Theatre program, led by Patti Susman with Joan Bendix and Merlynne Hancock, have gone on to do professional commercial acting work.

The Fairmount Center Youth Theatre program performs twice a year
