Over the next coming weeks, Olney Theatre Center is offering free Zoom classes taught by members of our staff, apprentices and National Players. These classes are broken up by days of the week. Below are the times and zoom links.

PLEASE NOTE: TUESDAY CLASSES ARE CANCELED WHILE WE TRANSITION TO A REGISTRATION-BASED SYSTEM.

While these classes are free to you, all instructors are being paid as part of our effort to keep our artists and staff employed and active. Donations are appreciated.

These classes are also organized and scheduled by age range each day: 

9:00 am - 10:00 am: Pre-K

10:00 am - 11:00 am: Young Audiences

11:00 am - 12:00 pm: Teen

12:00 pm - 1:00 pm: Teen

2:00 pm - 3:00 pm: Teen 

3:00 pm - 4:00 pm: Early Career Audiences 

4:00 pm - 5:00 pm: Any and All Ages 

All classes will continue to be free but for the safety of our community and staff we will begin requiring registration. The online class registration form can be found below. Complete this form, and then our instructors will email you the zoom password and information.
