LINX Theater Company instills confidence and creativity through drama and comedy education designed for kids in 4th through 9th grade. This class will help future theater professionals understand what will make them valuable contributors to the craft, as well as help kids opting for other fields of study. Both will gain a unique perspective and an advantageous ability to innovate as they work together as an ensemble.
In Company Theater, advanced players start to learn nuanced elements of verbal, physical and emotional performances that can affect an audience without their realizing it. They learn how to make an audience member root for, fear, laugh at or despise the appropriate character. The separation between actor and character becomes complete, as performers understand that nothing about their character reflects on them.
Adaptations of classic stories and intriguing original works provide balanced roles that delight players and audience members alike. Players are constantly challenged to take roles they have not experienced before, stretching their abilities and keeping them from being overlooked by future directors.
Your child will learn:
- Character development
- Story telling
- To understand how stories can be re-told and the process of invention
- To combine voice, body and emotion into dynamic performances
- To perform better than their peers
- Confidence in creativity
- To innovate
- How to work together as part of an ensemble

Anything's Possible Festival - Fall 2020
Our Company students kick things off this season by performing two Greek myths in our fall showcase. Each of these myths will explore the themes of stretching yourself to the limits of your imagination, and beyond. We can’t wait to get back onstage and perform together!
This Festival performance will take place in late October or early November in an open-air outdoor theater setting with appropriately distanced staging and seating for immediate family members.
The Wizard of Oz - Spring 2021
While we all know “there’s no place like home,” this session we stretch beyond the rainbow and past our comfort zone to discover new elements within this traditional tale. Join us as familiar friends journey down the yellow-brick-road, to Oz, and back home again. In an original script crafted by our own Mr. Todd, students will be challenged to work together to breathe new life into these classic characters. We’ll focus on our acting skills and deepen our connection to our characters, finding power within ourselves as we grow together as an ensemble. Highlighting the themes of community, family, friendship, and self-discovery, this new take is not to be missed. Who knows what might happen when we dare to dream?
Our Company Theater program is $329 per month, which includes a two hour Company Theater class and one hour technique class each week.
Please know that LINX bills 30 days in advance. Monthly fees are applied on the 1st of each month for the coming month of classes. For example, you will be billed on October 1st for November classes and on November 1st for December classes. We have this policy to ensure our teaching staff are scheduled and paid appropriately. Our policies page describes how cancellations need to be made in this advanced billing model.
Our monthly class rate is an average based on the cost of our program year divided by ten months. Some months will have more classes and some months less, but your cost will not change regardless of the actual number of classes in that month. This is a very different rate model from most enrichment programs and a LINX Difference.
