Now available to youth nationwide, The Coterie’s classes are led by our staff of trained teaching artists and are focused on a process-based curriculum.

For Ages 3-5 (Pre-K)
ANIMAL TALES: ZOO-VENTURES!
When the animals escape from the zoo, there’s no telling what their adventures will be! Get ready to jump, swing, and climb as we use our imagination to develop animal characters and stories inspired by books and movies. Whether you’re a tiger, flamingo, sloth, or any other animal, we’re excited to act out your story!
For Grades K-1
GROOVY TALES WITH PETE THE CAT
When trouble comes his way, does Pete cry? Goodness, no! He keeps walking along and singing his songs. Using the popular book series Pete the Cat, we’ll act out our favorite stories and create new adventures. Are you ready to hang with this cool cat?
For Grades 2-4
Incredible pieces of art have been left on the wall for far too long. It’s time to jump in and make up stories about paintings created by artists from around the world. Students will create scenes and characters based on famous artwork and even some of their very own masterpieces! Get your imaginations ready, because it’s time to explore!
For Grades 4-6
TIME TRAVEL SURVIVAL GUIDE
The past, present, and future are always hanging in careful balance. It’s up to you and your team of heroes to keep that balance and maintain order! Students will explore scenes and characters from various decades and eras, bringing to life days gone by and days yet to come. Are you up for the task?
For Grades 5-7 & Grades 8-12
Audition Lab is a great way to prepare for upcoming auditions! With the help of a professional teaching artist, students will choose audition monologues that match their age, personality, and individual audition needs. Students will prepare a monologue, develop successful strategies for cold readings, and learn how to create a professional resume. The final class includes a special audition with Jeff Church, Coterie Producing Artistic Director, or a member of The Coterie staff, for youth roles in the upcoming Coterie season. This class offers an opportunity for consideration in The Coterie’s Master Class.
