Due to a public emergency related to COVID-19, many of our scheduled programs and events have been affected.  Please note that effective March 13, 2020, all student theater programs have been suspended.

AHM Youth and Family Services is excited to announce that we have partnered up with Playhouse Theatre Academy, to offer fun and exploratory pre-professional theatre programs!

From workshops in Musical Theatre to themed sessions of Creative Drama, Playhouse Theatre Academy offers something for everyone.  As an emerging artist, or as a student wanting to explore your creativity in a new way, Playhouse Theatre Academy is your home for quality theatre instruction.

Please take a look below at some of our exciting new programs!

Meet Our Youth Theater Teachers

Sierra Kane

AHM is excited to introduce Sierra Kane, one of the teachers for our new theater program! Sierra is grateful to be a teaching artist for Playhouse on Park. She comes to Connecticut by way of Southern California where she received her B.A. in Communications at California State University, Fullerton. At Fullerton, she received an opportunity to co-teach a college-level public speaking course. There she realized she had a passion for teaching. With years of acting and comedy improv experience, she soon started teaching a weekly comedy improv course open to the public. Due to the success of the class, it ran for two years, until she moved away. Sierra has also been fortunate enough to have worked as a counselor at an Easter Seals Camp, a camp for youth with disabilities. In May she will graduate with her MFA in Acting from the University of Connecticut.

Thank You to Our 2019 Summer Youth Theater Sponsors!
