Build your actor’s ‘toolbox’ through this intensive! Learn everything you need to know about being a performer! With a variety of workshops throughout the weeks, participants will receive instruction in the actor’s voice, stage movement, physical theatre, character development, scene study, improv, and production. In addition, instruction in the “art of auditioning” will allow participants to experience the process of auditioning for a full-scale production and help them develop the necessary skills and confidence to do so. Throughout the session, each participant will select appropriate audition pieces, complete an actor’s resume, and have his/her head-shot taken. These ‘tools of the trade’ will help build confidence, develop skills in communication, support the use of imagination, and stretch creativity! Working with fellow actors, learn to bring life to the text and to characters. A final workshop performance will give you the opportunity  to prove you have all the necessary tools to fill your toolbox to the brim!
