Acting Day Camp 2018

June 18-22, 2018


A week-long intensive course, students will learn the basics of acting from improvisational techniques to scoring a script.  Focus will be given to relaxation, concentration and imagination exercises.  Students will explore their own inner motivations and emotions and learn to use them for the stage or screen.  Students are expected to arrive with a memorized, though not "worked," monologue.  They will also need to bring a "personal object" - something they own that has emotional value and a notebook.


The camp will be from 9AM-5PM each day and the cost if $250. The price includes lunch and snacks each day.


The cost to attend both the Acting Day Camp and the Film & Technology Camp is $500.
