Pursue Acting at Cavod!

Cavod Performing Arts offers classes in acting and musical theatre for students ages 8 & up where they get to learn the fundamentals of acting.

Theatre acting classes are a great way for students to improve their theatrical skills and develop confidence! They will meet new people and grow their social skills while learning acting technique, vocal projection, and more.

Our goal is to help students grow in their abilities, be challenged artistically, have fun learning with others, and walk in their God-given identity. All our instructors are professional local performers with both classroom and real-world experience. 

(Students in our acting classes will perform an in-class showcase for family and friends. If you are interested in auditioning for one of our full-length musicals with Cavod Theatre, follow us on social media to catch audition announcements!)

No prior experience is necessary for our classes. See our options below! Interested in joining the Cavod Theatre Production Team? Click here

My husband and I just got to see the amazing production of Anastasia this past weekend at the theatre in New Holland! I had been at the theatre for an open house some time back, but never really got involved or had seen a show…..until this past weekend!!! We will be back……whether it’s to see another show or for me to get involved somehow :)Cavod does an amazing job with keeping Jesus at the center of everything that they do, and my family and I applaud that! Bravo Cavod for making community theatre available and accessible for Lancaster County and surrounding areas :)

CAVOD is a performing arts school & community theatre like no other! The opportunities available- all under one roof- are a gift and a blessing to all who come through their doors. Our five children have grown in the safe and encouraging environment CAVOD provides, grounded on Scripture and the truth and love of Jesus. CAVOD’s teachers and directors, mentor their students and help them grow in their God-given talents. Their theatre productions will leave you breathless. Telling stories worth telling, such as Anastasia, CAVOD brings timeless tales and truths to the stage, reminding us all that light and hope do triumph over the darkness.

We LOVE Cavod! 5 of our children are taking classes at Cavod. We are incredibly thankful that they are all on scholarship. The four girls are in the Friends in Motion classes. They enjoy participating with other children who have special needs. The teachers are caring and make the classes fun! Our children have also enjoyed several of the summer camps, ballet, acting class, musical theater, vocal ensemble and piano. The Christ centered culture at Cavod has the kids as well us as parents looking forward to Monday and Thursday evenings. Thank you Cavod!

My son has taken theatre classes for 2 years here and tap for one year. It is a wonderful, welcoming place. Everyone is very friendly. We also appreciate the Christian environment and knowing that our son is being taught to perform to the God's glory. I would highly recommend Cavod!

Having been to 5 musicals at CAVOD Theater, including a Junior show of 42 kids, I can confidently say the quality of acting and musical performance delivered at this community theater is superior to several professional shows I have seen.

My daughter is in her 6th year at Cavod and she has blossomed into a beautiful young women. Cavod has become her happy place and she has made lifelong friends here. She has grown not only technically but spiritually as well. She found her thing and a place to call home! When we moved to Lancaster and she had to switch schools I promised her no matter how far we moved I would never take Cavod away. And now my stepdaughter is enjoying it as well. Thank you for giving me a safe place to teach my children everything from dance to acting to loving and accepting others! And that they are special because of whose they are!

We saw our first Cavod theatrical performance just recently--Seussical! My husband and I were so impressed by the quality of the production--the acting and singing were top-notch. I was also impressed by the amazing, colorful costumes and props--a feast for the eyes! To top it off, we had the privilege of meeting the executive director and her husband after the performance and getting to learn about the vision behind Cavod and the journey that has been taken to get to this point. New Holland is indeed blessed to have such a great theater in its midst!

My 9 year old daughter loves Cavod! She has always been creative, and dramatic, lol, so I knew acting would be perfect for her. I struggled to a find somewhere that I thought would help her utilize her talents and still be in a Christian atmosphere. A friend told me about Cavod, and it's amazing! They offer just about everything in the Arts, and it fills my heart with joy to finally have found a place for her to do what she loves and grow more in her faith!

This is an amazing school. Its presence is desperately needed since it is one of so few Jesus centered dance and theatre schools available in the area. The director and staff are always approachable. The teachers work so hard to get each one to perform at their personal best level. I have adored all of the teachers I have ever had.

Thank you for allowing Breianna, her grandpa and myself to observe the Acting A session last evening! Breianna is very anxious to start acting classes and we hope you will be able to open the Monday 5:30 class, very soon!
