Tween Workshop

Grades 5 – 8

Either Tuesdays or Wednesdays 3:30PM – 5:30 PM

Tween actors will experience a professional rehearsal process, coupled with theatre games and acting exercises designed to fit their learning levels. The tweens will dive deeper into their work as actors as they endeavor to gain confidence and knowledge about all aspects of theatre and performance.

About our process: When you sign up for an audition, you are signing up for the session! We do not make ‘cuts.’ Auditions are simply a way for us to get to know our actors each session, and for them to gain confidence and comfortability with auditioning. Instead of choosing a show in advance and shoehorning children into it, we choose our shows, and our schedule for the semester, based on the schedules and auditions/callbacks of the actors who sign up. Our emphasis is on the process of putting on a show, integrating theater games and acting exercises throughout the rehearsals.

In lieu of on site auditions this session, we ask that actors film a brief audition and send it to us by January 29. We will hold callbacks on January 30 and 31 to hear actors read from potential shows. Callbacks will either be on site or virtual.

Tween rehearsals begin the week of February 22. Each cast will have the final performance of their show at the end of May / early June 2021, depending on the schedule.

Teen Intensive

Grades 9 – 12, Either Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays, 5:00PM – 9:00PM

A conservatory program, the Teen Intensive will consist of professional training from actors and directors with extensive experience in the business. Rehearsals will include technique in acting, musical theatre, dance, and improv. This Intensive will culminate in a full-length production.
