ACT-UP offers affordable, flexible theatre classes for working adults while providing a forum for established local artists to share wisdom, develop teaching skills and promote their work. While these classes focus on process work over performance, we encourage students to apply their skills by participating in Tennessee Stage Company’s various projects and productions. ACT-UP classes are made possible thanks to a grant from the Tennessee Arts Commission.
