Intensive summer acting camp for teens ages 13-19 slated to begin July 11th, 2011 and run through August 5th. Youth will experience all aspects of the life of a performer, from auditioning to final performance.
Classes will run Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm. The schedule for the first three weeks will be as follows:
9am- Noon: Acting Technique Classes
Noon- 1pm: Lunch Break (students bring their own lunches

In the final week, students will perform their play at a variety of places in the community, including a Children's Home for Orphans and a retirement community. The play we will be performing is "Snow Angel" by David Lindsay-Abaire.
Students will come away from the camp not only with the experience of what it is like to be a professional actor, but will also have a solid knowledge of how to audition and prepare for a role.
This summer acting camp is an intense acting experience perfect for any child who has expressed a desire to pursue a career in entertainment. Because of the size and nature of the class and in the interest of security as well as efficiency, participants will be required to adhere to a set of behavioral rules.
