Austin Peay’s Community School of the Arts Registration Open until Jan. 23


CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – The Community School of the Arts (CSA) at Austin Peay State University continues its spring term registration, including the return of theatre classes.

Registration is open now and runs through the first day of classes, Monday, Jan. 23, 2023. The cost for the 6-week programs varies per class and range from $35 to $150.

With the public’s overwhelming interest in theatre, after seven years of not offering theatre classes, CSA has not only brought back the classes, but has also created the Clarksville Youth Theatre.

The Clarksville Youth Theatre (CYT) is a youth theatre program for ages 10-17 designed to give youth the opportunity to experience the process of putting a show together and performing in a show. The CYT runs for an entire semester, meeting for an hour and a half once a week and concludes with performances of that term’s show.

Recent Austin Peay theatre department graduate Alyssa Amos will be the first Clarksville Youth Theatre Director, presenting The Outsiders.

“I am beyond excited to play a part in the new community theatre program,” Amos said. “Although classes in the Clarksville Youth Theatre currently have waiting lists, we encourage you to sign up for the additional art, writing, yoga and dance classes that are being offered this spring.”

Here are the classes that will be offered during the new term:
