Theatre Youth Camp, Ages 13 – 18
3 Days: July 5 – 7, 2018 – $100.00 (see details below) with Amelia Sirianni
This year, the youth camp will focus on the foundations of acting. Young performers will hone their craft through improvisation, script analysis, character development, and voice and creative movement work all culminating in a final staged reading performance of a Canadian play touching on the issues and themes of adolescence. This three-day workshop will also offer students the chance to watch a Mainstage show and participate in the coffee critique of that piece.
