Welcome to Drama Kids of Hennepin County – – We are the fastest growing children’s theater program in the Twin Cities! Our school year sessions are enrolling now. Check availability in your school district by selecting the schedule tab above.

Drama Kids is a unique program that focuses in developing self-confidence, public speaking skills, teamwork and creativity through theater and acting opportunities. Our lessons help students find their voice and learn how to channel their creative energy into creating characters and presence on stage. Through the lessons, they develop and grow. Whether dramatically outgoing or shy, we work with each student to encourage their talents and help them become a more confident communicator. Each semester parents can see the growth for themselves – in parent presentations and our year-end Spring Play Production. At Drama Kids, we build Confidence — not just shows.
Welcome to Drama Kids of Hennepin County. THE fastest growing children’s theater and drama program in the Twin Cities!
Our Spring PLAY PERFORMANCE and SUMMER CAMP sessions are enrolling now across Hennepin County. Click on the “CLASS SCHEDULE” tab above to get details on where and when to find our classes and camps. Spring is our busiest semester, so we encourage you to enroll early to avoid waiting lists and disappointed students.
Our program is different from other children’s theater programs where the cycle is Audition>Rehearsal>Perform. Honestly, those are not a lot of fun for kids. The goal is to focus on the talented few and there is a TON of downtime for kids waiting to say their few lines.
At Drama Kids, we build Confidence – not shows. Our focus is on teaching kids life skills like team problem solving, thinking on your feet, public speaking and creativity THROUGH theater and drama. It’s a means to an end – and the goal is to have confident kids who can express themselves in front of people and enjoy creating in a team environment. Yes, we do put on shows – but there are no auditions. Everyone performs and everyone is on stage during the entire show. So you won’t have to wait until the second act to finally see your child!
Parents tell us Drama Kids builds their student’s literacy skills, expressiveness and comfort around new people. Our teachers are trained and committed to making the Drama Kids experience positive for all students.
