FINAL AUDITIONS SATURDAY, JULY 14th
Students will train in the same acting methods we use to train our adult actors — acting technique, stage combat, games, and physical acting — and leave the intensive with great tools for the stage and screen.
The program culminates with an outdoor production of The Rover by Aphra Behn as the final show in show in Sylvia Center for the Arts’ Open Air Summer Rep.
We have full ($600) and half ($300) scholarships available for students enrolling in our summer production by request, thanks to Skipping Stone Foundation — check box on audition form on July 14 to apply for one of our available scholarships.
