About this Event


This workshop is for our youngest actors 6-11 years old!


With lots of screen time, improvisation and play, students will learn the tools actors use to create characters and tell stories.  Students will use their own observations to explore building a character.  It should be a fun exploration with tools to take home and bring to any new audition that comes their way!
