YAP JR. IS FOR YOU!
Middle School, Ages 11-14

As an adjunct to our popular Young Artists Program (or “YAP”), this new series of ala carte workshops for our middle school students is designed to fit into the increasingly busy schedules of the tween set. Topics will be geared toward specialized areas of the craft of theatre and will challenge participants with new ideas, techniques, and skills that will be beneficial as they endeavor to be better actors, singers, dancers, technicians, and human beings. Possible workshops titles include: Advanced Script Analysis, Makeup for the Stage, Shakespeare for Young Artists, Musical Theatre Dance Styles, etc.
