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

The Fairmount Drama Club- Thursdays 4:30-6pm: Throughout the course of the semester Drama Club members will experience theatre from conception to final production as they work together to write their own show, design their costumes and set pieces, create their own choreography, and finally perform their masterpiece during the final showcase. This season’s program will focus on honing students’ improvisation skills. Along the way they’ll learn basic voice and movement techniques, improv games, different genres of theatre, audition etiquette, and the craft of critique. The program will culminate in a final performance for friends and family on the last day of class. Sign up HERE.
