Program Description


Take a deep dive into learning acting techniques to prepare you for the stage. Young actors will work on age-appropriate monologues and scenes. In this workshop young actors will: develop a physical relaxation practice and build their concentration, analyze scripts, explore obstacles and tactics, trust their impulses, make bold choices, explore their voice and connect to it on a deeper level, connect with their ensemble members by listening and sharing, experience the joy of playing, build characters, and create collaboratively!

We will have a shared performance in the park in December.
