ACTING (Ages 11-15 and 16+)
Comedic or Dramatic? That is the question. Choose your perfect monologue and explore the character behind it in our Monologues & Character class. Working alongside professional actors and directors students will learn the fundamentals of preparing and performing a contemporary monologue. Both in-person and virtual programs available.
DRAMA DISCOVERY (Ages 6-10)
Comedy! Mystery! Mayhem! Discover the joys of theatre and performing at Drama Discovery Camp. Improv, characters, storytelling, and more – this camp will teach students how to unleash their creativity and work alongside new friends to create a theatre piece that will blow your mind! This is an in-person program.
DRAMA EXPLORATION (Ages 11-15)
If your kid is a jokester, the life of the party, or a total drama nerd… they will LOVE this class! Students will explore elements of stage awareness, character development, and improv. This will lead them into scene work where they are encouraged to unleash their creativity and work alongside new friends to create a theatre piece that will blow your mind! This is an in-person program.
IMPROV (Ages 15-17)
Say yes, and take an improv class! Learn to create strong characters and further your improv storytelling skills through narration and scene work. Both in-person and virtual programs available.
SKETCH (Ages 11-15)
What do Sketch Comedy and Zoom have in common? Nothing. That is… until now! Sketch Comedy and Zoom are joining forces in Sketch class. Explore improv, sketch writing, character building and video technology to create an online sketch show that’s totally your own! This is a virtual program.
SKETCH (Ages 16+)
Sketch Writing is all about storytelling… in the funniest way possible! Learn the fundamentals of writing and (virtually) performing hilarious sketch comedy in Sketch class. Students will meet up via the interweb to improvise ideas, create unique characters, and write sketches in various styles. Think Baroness von Sketch or Saturday Night Live. This is a virtual program.
