Summer 2024 Teen Acting Intensive

Ages 13-19

$400 Tuition

Students must be available June 3rd- 30th

Rehearsal Schedule Dates are subject to change, though we try really hard not to. 

Please also fill out an enrollment form for the 2023-2024 school year if your child does not already have one on file.

Students will be selected in an audition process; therefore, every student may not be admitted into the program. Factors include how many students audition, roles available, student's time conflicts, as well as the audition itself. The program is meant for students ages 13-19 who are ready to grow as actors and performers. Rehearsals are rigorous, and actors will be expected to work outside of rehearsals preparing their characters and working on lines. At the end of the session, students will perform a polished, quality production they can be proud of. Tickets will be available for purchase for the production of The Alibis. 

The Alibis is a comedic take on the classic whodunnit style play. 

"When eccentric billionaire J. Leslie Arlington is murdered, a clueless detective finds the suspects are all reluctant to admit their alibis . . . because they were all committing other ridiculous crimes at the time... You never know what's coming next when your suspects include disgruntled chefs, teen detectives, and vengeful divas, but one thing's for certain: Every alibi is absolutely absurd."

At this meeting we will discuss all details and answer questions. During a short portion of the meeting we will be playing acting games and doing script readings so that we are able to cast the show. If your child signed up, they are guaranteed a role, we just need to figure out where to put everyone. All roles have a minimum 9-10 lines.

Student must be able to attend all 5 days of the camp, plus the performances on Saturday, March 30th. Students may be double-cast, but will get to perform in at least two of the four performances.

 Students will learn the basics of being in a play. They will learn warmups,  blocking, creating interesting characters, working as a team, and more. Students will need help with line memorization at home. Costumes will be simple pieced together items, and the kids will get to be involved in creating them. Parents may need to provide a few items such as shoes, pants, undershirts, etc.
