Acting Classes

We offer inspiring training programs for adults throughout the Milwaukee area. Classes for individuals wanting to learn more about the craft of acting and theater are held onsite at Milwaukee Rep throughout the year. Arts-based training for the business professional is available for groups either onsite or at your corporate location.

Milwaukee Rep Education is dedicated to offering a variety of programming for students of all ages, interests and backgrounds. The Adult Classes are designed specifically for adults ages 18+ who are interested in developing a wide range of abilities related to the theatrical craft. Whether you are a beginner with no formal training or experience, or a seasoned performer looking to sharpen your skills, we offer courses and intensives throughout the year to fit your needs. Class sizes are limited to ensure one-on-one feedback to each student. Check back frequently as we continue to update our offerings throughout the season.
