Let’s Get Into the act!
for students entering 7th grade through 12th grade or age 13 through 18 years old

The week will combine improvisation, scene work and developing onstage skills for young actors. Performers will play games and work creatively to explore character development, movement, and story-telling. The camp will include the rehearsal of a short show to be performed at the end of the week.


LOTS OF FUN… During the week we will produce a show and focus on the following topics: improvisation, scene work, developing the character, movement, story-telling, reaching your objectives, and developing on-stage skills.
