Classes for Grades K-3
Level 1 Children’s Class Starts January 6 (10 weeks) . Saturdays 9:00-10:00am . $400
The Level 1 Children’s Acting Class meets one hour each week and is a nine week course designed for ages 5-8. It focuses on Stage Direction, Working Together, Partnering Exercises, Volume and Diction, and eventually creating scenes. Students enjoy acting and learning exercises such as “Mirror Image”, “Living Picture”, and “Dig Dig Dig!” which explores individuality and self-expression. New acting and learning exercises are added from time to time to keep the class exciting and fresh while maintaining its core-value that “Acting is living as truthfully as one can under an imaginary circumstance.”
Classes for Grades 4-6
Level 2 Children’s Class Starts January 9 (10 weeks) Tuesdays 4:30-5:30pm $400
The Level 2 Children’s Class for ages 8-10 or those with more stage experience builds upon the core values of Level 1. The course involves much more self-awareness than level one yet keeps its sense of fun. Everyone learns that ‘the character is on the page, but the role is on the stage’ in this class which means that the only actor is ‘you’ and you have the freedom to portray the role according to what the playwright puts on the page with the director or instructor’s guidance.
NEW: Classes For Tweens!
The New “TWEEN” Class Starts January 10 (10 weeks) Wednesdays 4:30-5:30pm $400
This new class is specifically for ages 11 and 12. They’re not little children anymore, and they’re not quite teens….They’re TWEENS! The course builds upon what they may already know about acting, allowing them to become more self-aware and more self-confident within their own ability level. Focus is on dealing with other actors while creating scenes among their own age group, and issues that are relevant to them. Also good for the beginning actor, who will start within their own age group.
Classes For Teens
Teen Acting Class Starts January 7 (8 weeks) Sundays 6:00-7:30pm $400
Being true to yourself is a main ingredient in the Teen Class. Students meet for 90 minutes per week for eight weeks with the option of doing scene work with a partner or a monologue. The class is broken up into time sections which also include improvisation, scene creation and study, and dialogue within the class about the work being done. The final week is an Open House in which family and friends are invited to see the work being done by the teens.
Classes For Adults
Adult Acting Class Starts January 9 (8 weeks) Tuesdays 7:30-9pm $400
The class explores improvisation with the Sanford Meisner technique. The Adult Acting Class will be for actors of all levels, assisting both beginners and those who have made acting a career.
All Media Theatre classes follow the Sanford Meisner Technique, which is based on the premise that, as the legendary acting coach stated, “Acting is living as truthfully as one can under an imaginary circumstance.”
Prices are: $400 per semester for all above classes
