This three-day workshop capitalizes on the natural mimicry of this age group to develop acting fundamentals - the use of the voice, face and body, character and scene work, and acting games that develop imagination and self-confidence.  While perfect for the beginner thespian, this session is just as useful to the experienced actor in introducing new skills.

Wed. - Fri. 10:30am – 2:30pm

Instructor:  Lydia Bratton
What do you know about cartooning? Join our mini-camp and improve your character illustration skills and personal style. We will look at eastern and western comics, and then use hand drawing, digital tablets, and cartooning software to illustrate a page, just like the professionals!  Course Fee includes tuition and supply fee.


Ages 8-12
(9 Hours)  Dec. 26-28 
Wed.-Fri. 1:30 - 4:30 pm

This workshop will build on the growing attention span of this age group and explore a broad range of acting experience, improvisation and scene work, with the opportunity to develop characters and allow them to flourish in a variety of theatrical situations.  The session is perfect for honing the skills of the confident young actor, but newcomers are welcome to join the fun in developing their talents and gaining the resources to pursue the theatre.
