Year Round Acting Classes for Kids

B Street’s Year Round Acting Classes

B Street Theatre announces our Winter & Spring Acting Program for 2019, a series of workshops for kids of all ages and skill levels. These Acting Programs offer students a fun, exciting, and creative environment to develop their skills with professional instructors active in the fields of theatre, improvisation, and acting instruction. Each program lasts 8 weeks and is led by B Street veteran Greg Alexander. 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 concludes with a final showcase performance where our young actors show off everything they’ve learned. Come and join the fun!

All Studio for Young Actors classes will take place in the upstairs classroom facilities at our BRAND NEW THEATRE! The Sofia Tsakopoulos Center for the Arts, the New Home of the B Street Theatre!
2700 Capitol Avenue, Sacramento
