Are we the right choice for your child?

PTW students are as varied as the course selection we offer, but they share a love of theatre and the arts. With over 57 classes to choose from, we can help you find the perfect fit for your child’s passion, skill, interests and goals.


“Is PTW for children who want to be professional?”
“Can my child just go for fun?”
“Will my child learn and grow?”


The answer is yes to all 3! We can help your child achieve their ambitions whether they want to:

  • Star on Broadway
  • Work in Film or TV
  • Get a part in the school musical or play

  • Build self-confidence
  • Simply experience the joy of theatre and the arts

We’ve spent over 30 years building a warm, supportive, culturally rich community where children of all ages and levels can find friendship, confidence and skills they will use for a lifetime.

Based in Maplewood New Jersey, we have students from Essex, Morris and Union County, and elsewhere throughout the state. PTW is now one of the foremost performing arts schools in New Jersey and the entire New York Metropolitan area.

Flexible Payment Plans

We believe every child should have the chance to follow their performing dreams. We provide flexible payment plans so that parents can afford to give their child access to training without having to pay everything at once. You can spread your payments out and choose your payment dates so you always feel in control.
