    Do you offer kids’ or teenage acting classes? I have a 13 year old who is interested. If you do not, can you please recommend one in the north Austin area? I appreciate your response. Take care!

      I’m glad you’re interested in our improv class!

      Right now, the regular improv classes we offer are for 18 years and up, with a few exceptions for some mature 16-year-olds. I refer people looking for improv classes for youth to the Youth classes and Shows at ZACH Theatre.

      Let ZACH know Merlin Works sent you and good luck!
