After-school Enrichment

For nearly 50 years, Encore Stage & Studio has given children throughout northern Virginia an opportunity to grow and discover themselves through theatre: onstage, backstage, in the classroom, and in the audience. We bring high quality, age-appropriate theatrical productions to our community and offer an ever-expanding selection of enriching, curriculum-enhancing educational classes, workshops, and summer programs. We believe that participating in live theatre has critically important benefits for young people: it builds teamwork, leadership, creativity, literacy, and problem-solving skills, as well as self-confidence. Encore provides a stage where students can use their creativity to discover their potential.

Our course offerings include topics in acting, movement, music, playwriting, and more. We are also happy to work with you to customize a class based on the interests of your students. Encore’s teaching artists are also available to direct or produce your school’s play or musical. To get started, email us at or call (703)548-1154.
