Then this camp is a perfect fit!

tried-and-true approach to script analysis.

The campers' hard work will culminate in a demo-performance for friends and family.

MORE DETAILS

The 2020 Teen Acting Camp is for performers ages 12-18.  Together we will cover such topics as projection, physical acting, making bold choices, how to analyze a character/script, stage presence, improv, and developing & communicating relationships on stage - both live, and virtual! Campers will be given not only tools to become a better performer, but also skills that teach work ethic and inspire imagination, community, confidence, and passion.

  • Campers will receive a curriculum packet that they will use to learn how to analyze & develop a role and bring it to life on stage. Our curriculum is primarily based on the Stanislavsky system of acting, but we will also incorporate improvisational skills, traditional stock character types, and will touch on many other methods and approaches to acting.

  • We will hold auditions on the first day of camp for our demo-performance, which will be comprised of scene studies and possibly short plays.* Campers will spend the week applying all they learn to their assigned scripts.

WHAT TO PREPARE:   We will be using acting sides from our chosen scripts, as well as improv exercises.

TIPS: - Be sure to practice projecting your voice and making character-appropriate choices.

          -  Since this will be a virtual camp, it is helpful to practice acting with a computer or mobile device screen ahead of time.
