Junior Acting - Ages 9 - 12

Students further develop their acting foundation with introductions to various techniques. Through the basics of the Stanislavaski system- students learn about wants/objectives, through-line of action, sense memory, and place work. Further techniques will be introduced as students progress, may include Method, Meisner, and more. At the junior level students are introduced to directing techniques and writing scenes.

Each student will be given the opportunity to act in at least one 2-5 minute scene or monologue that spotlights them individually, within the play or production or separately.
