Storybook Theatre - Happy Way for Children Ages 5-7 to Meet The Performing Arts.
Storybook Theatre makes it easier for young actors to establish a role from a character they already know, work in scenes that they find exciting, and build a storyline to the happy ending. Actor's Rep in South Florida has a 10-week class coming up.
Young actors will learn the ABCs of performing on stage starting with voice projection and enunciation, stage directions, facial expressions, and body language.
The class will run for 10 weeks, from 10 to 11 a.m. at the Bhetty Waldron Theatre at Actor’s Rep, 1009 North Dixie Highway, West Palm Beach. The cost per student is $150, with a 10% discount for siblings. For each family there is a single lifetime registration non-refundable fee of $35.
