Acting Class Descriptions:

Acting 1, Acting 2 and Acting 3 are acting classes that explore acting techniques, creativity, improv, and imagination. Students will learn how to speak clearly, create characters, and become comfortable working with and in front of others. Theatre games and exercises will be used to teach skills in a fun and interactive way.

Since these are age-based courses, please sign up for the appropriate class for your child's age. A more advanced younger student may only be moved into an older class with instructor evaluation and approval.

Which class should my child take? Acting 1 is for ages 6-7, Acting 2 is for Ages 8-10, and Acting 3 is for ages 11-18. (Classes for younger children are taught on Tuesday and Thursday.)

Adult Acting Class is for those 18 and older. The class will cover aspects of auditioning (audition prep, gaining confidence, choosing and perfecting monologues, and cold readings). Voice, movement, and improvisation skills will be learned and practiced. Students will do scene work focusing on character development, vulnerability, subtext, listening, making bold and specific choices, and breaking down the scene. Acting techniques of various masters will be studied and practiced.

Acting classes for ages 6 to 18 are offered at 4:30 and 6:30 pm (immediately before and after Musical Theatre). Many students take both Acting and Musical Theatre classes for well-rounded theatre training.

Theatre School will take the following breaks:
Oct 18-20 for UEA
Nov 22-24 for Thanksgiving Break
December 27-29 for Christmas break
Mar 28-30 for Spring Break
