theatre school

The Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center is the place for aspiring theatre artists in the Pikes Peak Region.

We offer innovative and comprehensive professional theatre training programs for students ages 5-18. Musical theatre, Design, Acting, Choreography, Play Analysis and Stage Combat are just a sampling of the rich curriculum offered by our award-winning professional staff of instructors.

The Fine Arts Center Theatre Company believes that the developing of theatrical skills is a life-long journey. To that end, we have created a training program that begins at a young age and is specifically designed to foster development right up to high school graduation. We want our students to become part of the FAC family as they pursue further training in the arts.
