The Cultural Arts Playhouse


“There is no better activity than theater to benefit a child and teen in all aspects of their life! We work on confidence, social skills and focus through the art of theater!”

Bruce Grossman, Owner

For over 15 years the MTAA students at the Cultural Arts Playhouse have gained the confidence and self-esteem to lead successful lives, whether on or off the stage. 

Founded in 1995, CAP’s Musical Theater and Acting Academy is the most successful acting school on Long Island for children/teen/young adults. More than 40 of our students have worked on Broadway, national tours, regional theaters, movies, HBO specials, commercials, and voice overs.

The class curriculum is designed to give students an overall education in all aspects of theater, including speech and diction exercises, dance, improvisation, monologues, audition techniques, scene study and voice.  Students who have attended classes at CAP have frequently been cast in their school shows, community performances and camp productions due to their training at CAP!


    Our approach to acting classes is centered around positive reinforcement, thus developing their confidence.
