An independent day school for grades 6-12


The theater community at CSUS is highly creative and collaborative, engaging the imaginations of all those involved. We believe that theatre has the power to transform artist and audience alike through laughter and meaningful conversation.

Learning Can be Fun

Acting classes explore a range of material, including student-devised original pieces, classic scene study, audition technique, playwriting, stage combat, and more. All are welcome to come play with us — whether you’ve had no experience or several years of training under your belt, we guarantee a joyful learning environment full of games, creative exercises, challenging acting techniques, and the chance to discover something new about yourself.
