Classes & Camps for Youth

Shirlee & Henry Fonda Theatre Academy




The Shirlee & Henry Fonda Theatre Academy is dedicated to ensuring that all individuals have access to arts education. If you are interested in applying for a scholarship, please fill out our online application. The Director of Education will respond to your application as soon as possible.

In the effort to make theatre education as accessible as possible, in addition to scholarships, we also offer multi-class & sibling discounts. These are automatically applied at checkout.


What time should I arrive?

Students & caretakers may arrive up to ten minutes early for their class and enter through the main lobby doors. The teaching artist for your class will meet all enrolled students & guardians there.

What if a student needs to miss a class?

Please let us know in advance if a student will miss any classes so the teacher can adjust their lesson plan accordingly. Refunds cannot be made for missed classes.



Any requests for changes or refunds must be made in writing at least one week prior to your first class or camp. A full refund will be issued minus a $5 processing fee. No refunds after this point, only credit toward tuition of a future class, camp or workshop within a year of the cancellation. No exceptions for injury or illness.

Cancellation of Class

If your class or workshop is canceled, you will have the choice of a full refund (no processing fee charge) or a credit toward a future class or workshop.

Behavior: In order to ensure students derive maximum benefit and enjoyment from the classroom experience, students who become disruptive or disrespectful will be removed from class with no refund of tuition.
