Hedgerow Theatre School believes in training creators. We look to build skills of performance, singing, directing, writing, and improvising to better prepare your child to create, well, anything. We don’t just teach kids how to play, we teach them how to take the show and make it their own. 

We pride ourselves on enriching our students lives through the joy of play. In our Theatre School we use the same principles our professional company works with: daring, excellence, and play.

Prospero, a sorcerer and the rightful Duke of Milan, dwells on an enchanted isle with his daughter, Miranda. Twelve years earlier, the duke’s brother, Antonio, and Alonso, the King of Naples, conspired to usurp his throne. They set Prospero and Miranda adrift in a boat, and they eventually found themselves marooned on the island. Prospero is served on his island by Ariel, a spirit who he freed from a tree with magic, and Caliban, son of the witch Sycorax. When magic reveals that a ship bearing his old enemies is sailing near the island, Prospero summons a storm to wreck their ship. The survivors make it to shore in scattered groups.
