Summer Workshops for Young Aspiring Actors

Main Street Youth Theatre Summer Workshops for Young Actors

Main Street Youth Theatre is pleased to offer two summer workshops for aspiring, young actors. These workshops will be conducted by Dan Brown who just closed his Directing debut with Main Street Youth Theatre of The Wizard of Oz.

Acting for Young Actors

The Acting for Young Actors camp is meant for both children who are new to the stage, and actors with multiple productions under their belts. In this camp acting will be approached in two different ways. The rst is through theatre games. These games are designed to promote spacial awareness along with cooperation and theatrical creation. The second way that we will be approaching theatre is through rehearsing and performing short scenes. Children will be divided into groups of 2-3 to learn scenes selected for them based on their experience. The rehearsal process for a show will be condensed into a process for learning a scene. On the final day of camp, parents will be invited to come in and watch the scenes. Assisting Dan will be Grant Grace,who played the Scarecrow in MSYT’s recent production of The Wizard of Oz.
