Kids Summer Acting Classes

Summer Acting Program 2019

B Street Theatre announces our Summer Acting Program for 2019, a series of workshops for kids of all ages and skill levels. Our Summer Acting Program offers students a fun, exciting, and creative environment from professional instructors active in the fields of theatre, improvisation, and acting instruction. Each program lasts up to two weeks and is led by a team of B Street Acting Company members & teaching artists. Young performers learn the fundamental tools needed to develop their physical, vocal, and emotional range in a way that is both fun and playful. Concepts are presented through a series of acting exercises, theatre games, improvisation, rehearsal process, and performance. Every program culminates with a final showcase performance where our young actors show off everything they’ve learned. Come and join the fun!

Summer Program FAQ

Is there class on the weekend?

Regular class sessions are taught Monday-Friday with no class on the weekend. We will have a final dress rehearsal and performances on the last Saturday for many of the workshops however. WE will meet in the afternoon on the day of the showcase for a final dress rehearsal, have a short diner break, and then perform twice for friends and family. We will be performing the final showcase twice to accommodate all those who want to attend.

Is lunch provided?

Each student should BRING A BAG LUNCH. We will eat around noon each day in the courtyard. We will also have a snack break in the morning. A SNACK WILL BE PROVIDED by the B Street Theatre.

What will they learn?

Students will be exposed to a variety of theatrical training methods: skills based exercises, improvisation, scene-study, physical and vocal warm-ups, rehearsal techniques, memorization, performance in a final showcase, and much more.

When is final showcase?

The Junior, Teen, and Youth sessions will all have their showcase performances on the final Saturday. Students will need to meet in the early afternoon on the day of the final performance for a dress rehearsal. This will be followed by a short dinner break and two showcase performances for friends and family. We perform twice to provide all friends and family an opportunity to see the show.

Do we need to audition?

Auditions are not required for the Studio for Young Actors Summer Program. All skill levels welcome. We make an effort to pair students appropriately in regards to age and skill level.

Who will teach the classes?

Classes will be taught by a team of B Street Acting Company members who will have the assistance of other local professional actors & teachers.

Where’s Kurt?

After pioneering & leading the remarkably successful B Street Summer Acting Program for the past 15+ years, Kurt Johnson is pursuing exciting opportunities elsewhere and we wish him all the best! While we are all sad to see him go, we remain steadfast in our commitment to continue the same fun, interactive & energetic program that he started so many have come to expect.

What if I need to cancel? Is class registration non-refundable?

There is a $25.00 processing fee for all cancellations. There are NO refunds after June 1st.
