Whether you’re a beginning performer or a seasoned actor looking to brush up on your skills, our four-level Acting program offers something for performers of all experience levels. Beginning with level one, we’ll explore a basic understanding of how to harness the voice, body, and emotions. Then, we’ll progress, diving into the power of monologue, the excitement of the scene, and the fulfillment of creating an entire short play with your fellow student actors. Throughout the program, you will have opportunities to share your work in front of a live audience as part of Mixed Nuts, a student performance.
