Acting for Teens: Ages 14-17

All classes will be held online via Zoom until we are able to resume classes at the Studio.  


Sign up for either Part A or Part B independently (5 weeks each), or join both for the full 10 week term. You may join Part B without taking Part A. 


This class for teenagers builds on the basics of the “Game of Make Believe” introduced in Acting for Young People aged 9-13, starting from improvisations and moving into work on scenes. You will discover how to use yourself, your experiences and imagination to create a character in a play or story. Your belief and whole-hearted commitment to the circumstances of the play make it real for the audience. In an atmosphere of creative play and self-discovery, you will come to understand and experience the level of preparation and discipline you will need to try for a place in the professional theater. We’ll also work on how to prepare for auditions and cold readings.

This term we will develop WHAT ARE OUR KIDS THINKING? where you will begin writing your own monologues. We will then string these monologues into a short program and invite our parents and loved ones to share in this adventure on an open class on the last day of the term (Nov 21).

Please bring a monologue to your first class.
