This 90-minute class provides a more advanced option for our growing young actors. With a final presentation featuring characters and scenarios from Mary Poppins and beyond, the Young Actors will perform at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, June 2nd and Sunday, June 3rd, before our matinee performances of Mary Poppins, Jr. This class builds on the basics introduced in our Mini Actors’ showcase, concentrating on story-structure, characterization, the creative process, and acting techniques. Our Young Actors will experience a more realized performance, complete with technical elements including sound and costumes.
Students are expected to attend all rehearsals and both performances.
Our Young Actors’ Showcase is an excellent training ground for our musical showcases! It is a prerequisite for our Musical Showcase program and we recommend a minimum of two sessions at this level of study.
Includes all rehearsals and performance weekend, show T-shirt & two complimentary tickets (one ticket for each performance; see below for additional ticket information).
