At Acting in St. Augustine we believe, “Theater is a necessary part of our children’s lives. It gives them the confidence to be an individualist and the knowledge of the proper way to present themselves for their future in whatever career they choose. It is a great outlet and helps in their cognitive and physical development, as well as self-expression and awareness of who they are as a person.”
