Arise to Become a Young Theater Maker

A North Texas staple, Arise Acting Studio moves into its next chapter with a new name and classes, more performance and travel opportunities, and now franchising.

“Teaching life skills through stage skills is what we are all about,” says Shane Peterman, co-founder and CEO of Arise Acting Studio. “We opened our first location in 2009, and it grew from there to three wonderful North Texas communities.” 

A Dallas native, Peterman, who also serves as producing artistic director for WaterTower Theatre—one of the area’s more distinguished professional theaters—is now franchising Arise Acting Studio nationwide.

“My dreams of owning businesses and producing theatre have been realized, and I would like to continue to help others realize theirs as well, whether it be through training as a young artist or owning their own business in the arts. No one else in the area is offering these kinds of opportunities and the training needed to make a comfortable living in show business. We even have students returning to work with us and own their own location.” 

Classes Offered

Each Arise Acting Studio location offers acting classes, film and improv classes, voice lessons and private lessons in all aspects of musical theater, as well as a Triple Threat Conservatory program. 

Productions and Touring Opportunities

The studio produces three professional-quality productions per year in addition to touring to locations such as London, New York City, Florida and Los Angeles to train with accredited industry professionals and perform. 

Arise Acting Studio will continue its mission of teaching excellence in the theatrical arts, while developing well-rounded individuals within the theater and beyond. As Peterman explains, “These tools and skills translate to wherever your dreams and career path lead.”
