Rose of Athens Theatre Academy

“Teaching Life Skills Through Stage Skills”

For Grades 1st-12th

Stage skills activate: Concentration, cooperation/collaboration, imagination, listening, expression, discipline, speech, trust and empathy.


Our Staff of professional actors, directors, theatre teachers and technicians are highly skilled at what they do, offering students the best training available in the Southeast. But they are also people who care deeply about young people and are passionately committed to sharing with them the joy and craft of theatre.
