Saltworks Young Actors Studio is a place to learn about acting among supportive friends. We emphasize building basic acting skills as well as developing personal character and the important skill of working in an ensemble. Our philosophy is “process over product” which means that we value the individual journey and the success of each student to achieve new goals more than the final production.

If you’ve been to Saltworks Young Actors Studio before, you know what a wonderful place it is to learn about theater. If you are new to Saltworks, don’t worry, you’ll soon feel right at home!
