Acting Classes

What Will Be Studied?

All aspects of the theatre, from theatre ethics to character development, are included in the classes. By character development,  both the character as a student and the character as an actor are stressed. Students are treated as professionals and they are expected to conduct themselves as professionals, both on stage and off stage.

As well as learning to act, these classes are designed to help the members to become thoughtful, caring individuals throughout his/her life.  The inter-generational forum allows students and seniors to learn from and share with each other. Goals of the program include bridging connections between the generations through the medium of acting, as well as building new friendships. 

These classes are designed to promote a positive and dynamic forum for building confidence and self esteem in both seniors and teens. Teamwork is stressed as well as achievement. The group is not just about the entertaining that they will do. Its message reaches the members as well, uniting generations.
