The Little Chimney Sweeps

For Ages 5-6

Directed by Ashley Promisel and Madison McVeigh


In this 60-minute class, our youngest actors are introduced to the building blocks of acting and theater. Great for new and returning actors, this class encourages students to use their imaginations in a fun and safe environment, and gain confidence as they learn the process of putting on a play. In addition to growing through acting training, the cast will have the experience of performing for a live audience George Mason University's Harris Theatre at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 2nd and Sunday, June 3rd before our Young Actors’ Showcase.
