Welcome to LATTE Theater!

LATTE Theater develops college to professional-level theatricality, collaborative leadership, socio-emotional growth and empowerment, creativity, and critical thinking skills for life. We encourage well-rounded, active community participation – all while having a blast making memories.

The LATTE Theater Acting Program stems from the conviction that Teen Actors can be trained with similar rigor and discipline as adults. As teens establish internal stage discipline (while having fun), they also are taught emotional wellness tools to allow them a healthy self-awareness as they are developing their stage characters to protect the psyche.

This acting training technique is specifically designed for young people’s personal triumph on and off the stage. The Pfluger Empathy Movement Method focuses on spherical growth in all aspects of character building, physicality and stage interrelationships , commanding voice and speech intonations, muscle activation, micro-expressions, and improvisation all while developing personal stamina and directing skills.  Curiosity and questions are encouraged for collaborative growth. Teens are included in the dramaturgy process and given a voice from the start of the acting intensive to the final curtain call.

Coaching for healthy stage intimacy and interrelationship creates a wholistic stagecraft approach where teens are not only acquainted with the core elements of acting training actively mentored in cultural, historical, literary, and psychological interrelationships that allow each teen to gain healthy insight as an actor or actress – for through stage we celebrate our humanity, challenge each other, find comfort… and create healthy opportunities to learn!
