Winter Classes

Retro Red Carpet Winter Classes

Our focus is on a fun exploration of theatre and performing arts. We employ innovative and enriching teaching techniques to build your child’s creativity, social skills, confidence and abilities as a performer.

  • There are no hidden fees.
  • There are no costume costs or costumes/props or supplies to buy.  If you purchase something on your own for a class or play that is fine, but it is never an expectation.  We loan our students what they need for our plays.
  • Each student gets four free tickets to their final show. Additional tickets are $5-10 each.
  • Our curriculum has been created and developed by a professional actor/ certified teacher.
  • All instructors are New Vintage Theatre working actors with extensive training and teaching experience.
  • You can get 10% off of your classes if you are a member. Memberships are $10 and last one full season (until September of the following year).
  • You can save an additional 10% off for every additional family member you register.
  • Pay by cash, cheque or email transfer. We do not accept post-dated cheques. NSF cheques will be charged and additional $50 as per our account fees.
  • Due to the constraints of our space and our philosophy about teaching class sizes are small- so register early to avoid disappointment.
