Young Actors Studio

 

The Young People’s Theatre Project has school-year opportunities designed especially for elementary and middle, and high school students.  Our YOUNG ACTORS STUDIO classes focus on a  range of theatre skills, with fun hands-on activities for many skill/experience levels.


FALL SESSION:

Fundamentals for the Actor (Grades 5 – 8)

Classes meet Wednesdays, 6:30 – 8:00 pm September 6 – October 11 in the Alex L. Parks Performing Arts Center at Jesuit High School.

From warming up to taking a bow and everything in between, students will learn all the skills a young professional actor needs in their tool box. This six-week intensive will address auditioning, character building, stage etiquette and basics of showmanship. Students of all levels of experience are invited to participate!

There will be a final Demo performance for friends and family on the last day of class (Wednesday, October 11). Tuition is $140.00.

WHAT IS YOUNG ACTORS’ STUDIO?

Classes are taught by local theatre professionals, some of whom started out as Project students themselves! Most multi-week sessions feature an informal demo presentation—giving students the opportunity to showcase the skills they’ve acquired—in front of an audience of friends and family.

For High School students, the Young Actors Studio takes the form of periodic workshop “intensives” with a specific focus, based around a special guest artist or opportunity, often just one exciting session long.  Please see below for current High School intensive opportunities.

Young Actors Studio classes are taught at Jesuit High School’s Alex L. Parks Performing Arts Center.
