School of Theatre

A Place For Everyone

“I love that ArtWorks Academy offers every student a part in the show regardless of their experience or skill-level. Everyone gets a chance to learn and build confidence as a performer!” –Meredith W.

ArtWorks Academy offers one of the finest theatre education programs in the region. Producing more than ten plays and musicals each season, we provide our students with a multitude of performance opportunities.  We believe the best way for students to learn about theatre is through the hands on experience of being in a production.   At ArtWorks Academy, your child will learn about all aspects of theatre. They will gain a solid technique, with an emphasis on performing. Our musical theatre students will develop their skills in the areas of singing, dancing and acting. Students have the chance to explore the performing arts and find what interests them.  Students truly grow as performers on our stages!

“ArtWorks Academy helped me discover my passion for Musical Theatre. The owners, Katie and Michael, became my biggest role models, and I made life long friends. This theatre is the reason I was able to get into Oklahoma City University’s School of Music. If you’re looking for a foundation for your future success, go to ArtWorks Academy!” -Mackenzie McIntyre

Multiple Venues

Our productions are held at three different venues, both at our Main Campus and on the campus of Randall University.  Performing in both a proscenium theatre and a black box theatre teaches students to be flexible and better prepares them to perform professionally, where they will perform in multiple types of theatre spaces.  

Satellite Locations

In 2018 ArtWorks Academy announced the expansion of our School of Theatre through the development of our satellite program.  We currently offer classes at our Main Campus in north Norman, and at our satellite campuses in Yukon and in SE Norman/Noble. We are honored to be able to bring the joy of theatre to students in these communities!

Voyage is a theatre experience for the young, founded by ArtWorks Academy. Theatre developed specifically for children and youth ignites their imagination and invites them to share in the wonder that only live theatre can bring. Voyage will produce three productions during the 2021-2022 Season!

ArtWorks Academy is the perfect program for my creative daughter.  She’s been able to discover practical tools like what the audition process looks like and enjoy the artistic expression of being involved in a high quality production.  The owners are professional, thoughtful, and act with integrity.  I can’t think of a better place than ArtWorks Academy for my daughter to grow in her love of theatre as well as be involved in a quality program.  –Christina E.
