The JCC offers opportunities for children to culturally enrich their lives, specifically on the stage. These youth theatre classes are perfect for anyone stepping on stage for the very first time or for the seasoned performer, looking for another opportunity to shine. Theatre classes are proven to be good for physical, artistic, personal, and social development, as well as increased self-confidence. For more information on any youth theatre programs, contact Rachel Rustin Henson at 210-302-6969.
