Now Enrolling! After School Student Programs


Presto offers two levels of after school classes. Not everyone is ready to jump on stage, that’s why we offer options to meet each child where they are!

Original scripts and small casts make sure that all children are featured, and every production includes some audience participation so friends and siblings can feel included! We want all our performers to experience the thrill of a stage production, and foster growth in their confidence, courage, and independence.

Classes are held at St Francis Episcopal Church, 399 San Fernando Way, San Francisco.

Students from Commodore Sloat will meet on the Sloat upper playground at dismissal to be walked across the street. Pick up is from St Francis at 4pm. Students enrolled in the YMCA afterschool program at Sloat will be walked back to campus.

Andante Grades K-1

An introduction to musical theater, each class will include singing, dancing, acting and improvisational games. At the end of the session, there will be a short presentation of songs and scenes.

This is a great place to start, and perfect for those who want to try out musical theater, but aren’t sure if it’s right for them. Everyone will have a part as they create drama and bring a tale to life by using the tools of body, voice, and imagination. There will be some memorization assigned throughout the session, and some solo lines assigned to those who are ready.
