Delray Beach Playhouse Introduces New Theater Education Program For Kids, Adults


Staff report

The Delray Beach Playhouse is introducing a new theater education program for children and adults as part of their community outreach this month.

Led by new Education Director, Lauren Anastasi, the program is designed to offer year-round classes and training sessions in all aspects of theater performance and production. The program begins in September  with classes in theater production, acting and playwriting.

In January, the program continues with “The Lion King Experience” for ages 6 to 14.

“I am thrilled to be joining Delray Beach Playhouse’s Creative Team as Education Director!” Anastasi said. “Theatre is hugely collaborative and yet most theatre programs keep each aspect of theatrical production separate in their classes. My goal is to create and develop innovative arts education programs that focus on quality training and collaboration amongst students and community. I am very excited to work with the fantastic team at the Delray Beach Playhouse to bring this vision to life for our theatre community!”

“As we continue to grow and expand our offerings at the Playhouse, Theater Education is a top priority for us,” explains Executive Director, Kevin Barrett. “We want to be the ‘go-to’ place for all things theater oriented in Delray Beach, and this is the next logical step.”
