Kids and Teens - Summer Classes

GRADES 8-12: SUMMER INTENSIVE FOR TEENS: IN PERSON

To apply for this in-person class, proof of vaccination is required. Make sure to upload your covid-19 CDC vaccination card (jpeg or pdf) or, if you are submitting on behalf of your child, your child's vaccine card before submitting your application. 

Please review our Health & Safety page for more information on uploading your Vaccination Card and our current guidelines.

This exciting one-week intensive is designed for teen actors who wish to train in a professional environment.

Using improv and theatre exercises we introduce the fundamentals of relationship, action, and personalization. Using the language of Shurtleff's Guideposts, we explore scene study. Students also have classes in On Camera, Stage Combat, and Improvisation.

Our teen students have the opportunity to work with members of our dynamic professional faculty; working Chicago actors and directors.  Toward the end of the students will take a field trip to The Goodman Theatre for a tour and a discussion about auditioning, casting, and professional acting work for the teen actor. 

Classes include:

  • Acting Technique
  • Scene Study
  • On-Camera Technique
  • Stage Combat
  • Improv
  •  Q&A with an Industry Professional 

This program is ideal for teens who have some experience under their belts, and are ready to train in a professional environment. No audition is necessary for this program.

Tuition: $600
