OUR CLASSES ARE FUN

"Play touches and stimulates vitality, awakening the whole person - mind, body, intelligence and creativity."
Viola Spolin

Influenced by Viola Spolin's philosophy to teach acting through imaginative play, we learn by playing acting games! Each semester of classes progresses through a series of acting games that focus on concepts from trust building, character development, self-confidence, and projection, to staging, pacing, and more.  Students in all of our classes are invited to perform on the big stage for our end-of-class showcase at the beautiful California Center for the Arts, Escondido!

ACTOR'S TROUPE - PLAYS ONSTAGE

presents:  A Frozen Tale

Our ACTOR'S TROUPE is our non-musical (no song & dance) entirely scripted show!  It's a new class we created during the Covid shutdown and kids really enjoy all the lines.  

Everyone will get a role with lines to play.  There is a "soft" audition in which we audition everyone to see where best they fit the cast.  Teens & Youth mostly rehearse separately but will perform in the show together.  

Each semester we work on a new fun script!  Check out which play we are working on in our upcoming season!

THE VOICE CLASS

Come discover the secrets to singing!

It's amazing how much you can improve when you know what you are doing!  Each week, students will learn vocal exercises designed to help them learn how to use and discover their voice.  Exercises help students discover tone, placement, projection, head voice, mixed voice, and chest voice.  They will then work on songs which they will have the option to perform as a group with solos, duets and group singing in the showcase at the CA Center for the Arts

I love to write_edited_edited_edited.jpg

I LOVE TO WRITE

Write our next show!  Publish your book!

Zoom in with your drafts and notes (or just a great excited attitude) and get feedback and help to create a finalized script or storybook that is published and possibly even performed by our Acting Troupe or Showstoppers class!

Each class we discover ideas of what makes good writing, how to write engaging characters, plot ideas and formats and writing exercises to overcome writers block.

This is the only class that doesn't perform in the final class showcase, however your script might!  We would love for you to write our next show!
