APSU’s Community School of the Arts brings back Theatre Classes

Community School of the Arts (CSA) at APSUClarksville, TN – The Community School of the Arts (CSA) at Austin Peay State University (APSU) has unveiled its fall class slate, including the exciting return of theatre classes for children and adults.

“While I was a student at APSU, I remember the CSA holding theatre classes, and they always had good enrollment,” said Kevin Loveland Jr., the school’s new coordinator.
“When hired, I made it a mission for myself to re-incorporate theatre into the CSA. I’m excited for all that we have planned so far and can’t wait to see theatre flourish with the CSA,” Loveland Jr. stated.
