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.
