Kids all over the Tampa Bay area are back to reading, writing and arithmetic. But what if your child is all about the arts?

From "The Wiz" to "To A Jukebox Musical," the Patel Conservatory is gearing up for several new shows this fall. 

Action News reporter Jake Peterson visited the cultural arts, dance, music and theater training complex Saturday, Aug. 13, to talk to Suzanne Livesay, vice president of education at the Straz Center, and a student about the prestigious program. 

Students and adults are signing up for classes now.
