A vampire who’s allergic to blood. A bald werewolf. A ghost who stutters. A witch who can’t make potions, and a  vegetarian zombie. Hilarity ensues when they all meet with a newbie therapist  to discuss their problems.

THIS CLASS IS  ON HOLD & SCHEDULED TO RESUME IN FEBRUARY 2021.


PERFORMANCE SCHEDULED

- May 15 & 16 2021

This class is a unique opportunity to perform onstage in a meaningful way.  Beginners to advanced students will learn as they apply their developing skills to a character role in each unique musical story.   Class begins with skill building acting games and then moves on to learn choreography, character development, believability, projection, memorizing lines, living in the moment, relating and reacting to other characters in the show, and so much more.  Then with costumes and props we perform at the beautiful California Center for the Arts, Escondido!  Lights!  Backdrops!  So much fun!

Take your acting & improv skills to the next level!  

This is the ultimate act-on-the-spot improv game as you pretend to be someone else while you figure out the mystery!

Day one we will find out the story and which character you are.  Think about how they talk and move. Use your imagination! Make up a back-story. Why are you a suspect? Where were you at the time the gingerbread man/Starlet was murdered?  What motivation would you have to murder the gingerbread man/Starlet?  We will play acting games based on your character and explore how to add believability with using your voice, body, and face.  Extra points for costumes or props! The ‘murderer’ and possibly an ‘accomplice’ will receive a separate email to know they did it!  Shh keep it a secret.  It's up to the detective to figure it out.  
     

​Virtual class held on Wednesday

SESSION 1:  Sept. 16, 23, 30.  Oct. 7, 14, 21
SESSION 2 (New mystery to solve!)  Oct. 28, Nov. 4, 11, 18, Dec. 2, 6

Class size is limited by number of roles in each unique musical story - usually ranging from 18 - 26 roles.  Between weeks 4 - 6, our casting director comes and through simple "auditions" (one line readings for each role) cast the students into the roles available.  Students can join until the class is full or casting has been completed.  These classes employ a combination of meeting together for "live" rehearsals and meeting virtually to run lines and give acting coaching to small groups.  Parents provide costumes based on items specified to purchase that can often be found online. 

​Laugh your way to being a better actor as we play acting games which focus on different skill areas each week!  We then create skits, scenes and stories within a structured improv format.  We then create skits, scenes and stories within a structured improv format.   Scenes & monologues can be (but do not have to be) memorized and performed applying pacing, character development, diction & projection, build, theatre genre and more.

Holiday Show!

Welcome to our fun new Holiday Show!  It follows the same format as our "Showstoppers" class with a holiday theme!  We plan to take this show to the California Center for the Arts, Escondido (the first weekend in December) complete with light design, backdrops, costumes, song & dance and narration style lines.  This class will (hopefully) begin in the fall of 2021. 

You've got to see it to believe it.  (Hint:  Watch the video)  Class begins with super fun skill building acting games.  The second half of class we rehearse and film.  Everyone gets a video keepsake of the show!

In Session 1, we are doing the very funny Halloween play-virtually! 

The first class we read for and figure out who will play which role.  By class 3, costumes & props are figured out and on classes 4, 5, & 6 we spend a portion of each class rehearsing or filming for our final video performance.  

In the Make-A-Movie series students can (optionally) participate in the video editing experience.
