Two River Theater hosts a series of master classes called First Monday Masters, led by some of the marvelous artists who are involved in our season. Some master classes are for high-school students, some for adults and some are for mixed ages. Classes are taught by actors, directors, playwrights and designers—great artists who are excited to share their visions and work with students and lifelong learners.
Teachers can use our two-hour First Monday Masters classes for professional development, and will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the evening. We do accept Purchase Orders for these classes; please contact the box office to make arrangements if using a school Purchase Order for payment.
