Our Drama programs

Lights. Camera. Action.

For children, building self-confidence and self-esteem is no easy task. Getting comfortable speaking in front of friends, family, peers, and the public takes encouragement. Rainey Institute’s Drama programs support participants in their quest to become great actors and actresses while helping them gain the necessary skills to succeed in life.

STAGES New program

Students: 3rd – 8th Grades

STAGES is a creative catalog program, exploring the many stages and disciplines of performing arts!

Students will learn about and engage in various dimensions of stage performance, including drama, vocal music, dance, stand-up comedy, performance poetry, and public speaking, as well as the behind-the-scenes work of stage production, writing, directing, and producing.

STAGES offers a wide-ranging, educational, and fun experience for young performers to build the confidence and skills to shine on any stage!

“Seeing the smile on a child’s face after they have successfully performed in front of the public is a wonderful experience and it does great things for the child’s self-esteem.”

— Former Rainey Executive Director Lee Lazar
