For young people who are serious about the theater, this Sunday conservatory invites you to fall in love with the actor’s process. Each term has a different focus and may be taken separately or in sequence. Movement, Voice, and Acting Technique are integral to the program. The full year will provide strong preparation for students seeking to continue on in college or conservatory programs. 

An actor has to have a different knowledge of what it is to be a human being. We begin with Herbert Berghof’s definition of acting: “I am. I want. I do.” Get to know yourself through exploring your senses, your body, your breath, and your voice; then begin to expand your understanding of who you are and who you could be. In a joyful and supportive atmosphere, we strive to teach you a way of working. Gain courage to be yourself, to show up fully and explore your potentials through doing. Bring the 3 P’s: Patience, Passion, Persistence. (Please also bring your lunch, comfortable clothing to move in, and a yoga mat if you have one!)
