Acting Classes for Young People At Gloucester Stage
GLOUCESTER STAGE YOUTH ACTING WORKSHOPS
ACCEPTING STUDENTS FOR
THE FALL SESSION
Gloucester Stage proudly announces the Fall Session of Youth Acting Workshops for children ages 6 to 18 to discover their creative potential. The six week Youth Acting Workshop Fall Session taught by award winning actress Heidi Dallin will be held Saturdays beginning October 2. Each class is two hours per week and the students are divided in classes according to age. The Fall Session follows the highly successful Summer Session in July and August which boasted the highest enrollment in the program’s history. During the 2010 Summer Session students were given the opportunity to work side by side with professional playwrights, actors and directors from Gloucester Stage. YAW students had leading roles in new plays by Joanna Rush and Gloucester Stage Founding Artistic Director Israel Horovitz during the 2010 Summer Session. Gloucester Stage Youth Acting Workshops help students build self confidence and develop communication skills to use in their daily life as well as give them the opportunity to learn about the skills necessary for professional theatre. A professional training program, Gloucester Stage Youth Acting Workshops encourage students to discover and nurture their creative potential. The workshops include an introduction to theatre basics such as theatre games, improvisation, movement, vocal and physical expression, character preparation, scene study, storytelling, writing, public speaking and confidence building training. All classes are held at Gloucester Stage Company, 267 East Main Street, Gloucester. Class size is limited and registration is on a first come basis. To register, call 978-283-6688.
