Our tween programs help young actors to continue to build a solid foundation while also providing opportunities for more experienced young artists to dig deeper into more specialized topics.  We use tried-and-true as well as innovative theatrical exercises to encourage creativity, build confidence, and foster ways to work together as a group. 

PLAYmaking workshops also provide students with experience in rehearsing and performing for an audience.  Skills & Craft workshops dig deeper into developing specific artistic skills such as developing a character, playwriting, technical theater and design, and more.  Triple Threat workshops provide training in the three skills that make a successful musical theater actor: singing, dancing, and acting.

Tweens will learn to think outside the box and express themselves artistically in new and challenging ways.  All levels of experience welcome!

PLEASE NOTE: For our Workshops, we are currently combining the Tweens and Teens age groups together.

Acting Styles: Shakespeare

Shakespeare’s plays are seen by more people and done by more theater companies that any other play or musical in the country. They are some of the most beautiful plays in existence and, understandably, many actors are afraid of them. Learning how to understand the words and not fear them is exactly what this workshop is about. Students will each concentrate on one monologue and one scene to build their acting chops and even leave with new audition material.
