Historical Theater Academy

Thanks to our generous sponsors, the fall 2023 semester of Historical Theater Academy is free for all eligible participants.

Historical Theater Academy is a unique program designed for students in grades 6-12 that takes place at Discovery Park twice each year. Academy participants receive instruction in multiple aspects of theater and historical research and then stage a performance of the original work they create. In addition to gaining experience in numerous disciplines including acting, set design, costuming, writing and historical research, students learn collaboration skills.

Students in grades 6-12 are encouraged to join us at Discovery Park for this wonderful opportunity to learn and grow in the theater world.

Classes will be led by Discovery Park educators and guest lecturers.

To register your 6th-12th grade student, please email the education department at education@discoveryparkofamerica.com.

Thanks to our generous sponsors and donors, Warner Law Firm PLC, Third & Church of Union City and the Tennessee Arts Commission, the fall 2023 semester is free for all students who register.
