1st Semester Academy

October – December 2022
"Our classes cover all of the different skills needed to run a theatre. "

The 1st Semester Academy opens for registration on August 13, 2022. Classes take place at our studios at 177 Naghten Street, Columbus OH 43215 (Downtown) with opportunities to experience the many aspects of theatre from costuming, acting, scenic design, and movement to teamwork and building friendships. These classes are designed for a range of experience levels, though we do ask that your students come with their own passion and excitement for learning!


Young Storytellers

Storytelling is a fundamental human endeavor. We tell stories to share information, impart lessons and keep loved ones informed about our days. During this class students explore Storytelling and Story Acting in an engaging environment. This class culminates with an in-person share session on December 10 during the final 30 minutes of class between 2:00 – 2:30 PM. 

Students at this level will explore elements of theatre through engaging classes geared toward building awareness of the performing arts. Each class focuses on helping students discover their talents and a love of theatre through enrichment-based programming and plenty of fun!

COVID-19 Procedures and Policy

CCT is monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and is in contact with local public health officials. During Fall Academy, mask use will be optional and may be done at the discretion of each participant and staff member unless an individual needs to mask due to exposure (as recommended by the CDC).


Proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test isn’t necessary to participate in classes, but testing or isolation will be necessary to rejoin the class for a student who stays home sick or becomes ill during class. Please monitor your student’s and household’s symptoms daily. Stay home if your student is ill. Also, stay home if someone in your household tests positive for COVID-19, has symptoms, is awaiting the results of a COVID test, or has not completed a minimum 5 full-day isolation period with improved symptoms. We will modify our protocols and procedures according to updated public health guidance and applicable law.


By entering our class, all students, parents and guardians, and CCT staff certify that they are not experiencing COVID-19 symptoms and that no one in their household has COVID.
