This enthralling course is designed to give budding actors the tools to generate authentic connections to dramatic texts, and to create believable and emotionally rich characters. Young Actor’s Workshop (YAW) covers the basic foundations of acting, including given circumstances, objectives, sense memory and recall, and how to effectively use improvisation and pantomime.

Participants in YAW are assigned scene work and improvisational exercises, and the course culminates in a presentation of memorized monologues or scenes. YAW incorporates multiple age levels in order to provide the necessary structure in order to provide students the opportunity to learn from each other’s work. This course is a foundation for the study of acting, and it is expected that the course will be repeated several times in order to deepen the understanding of acting technique and to delve more deeply into scene work.
