New York Acting Workshop Coming to South Jersey
Voorhees Theatre Company Partners with Actor's Technique for Day-Long Session July 10
By: Voorhees Theatre Company
The four-hour course, presented by New York agent Dina Torre, is intended to give young stage actors and singers the tools they need to transition to television and film. The workshop will provide an introductory session, an improvisation session, a practical session with sample scripts in front of the camera, and a critique with Q & A.
"ATNY is one of the city's 'go-to' organizations for actor training, so to bring that caliber of instruction to South Jersey is truly exciting," says Robin Darrow of Voorhees Theatre Company. "For anyone who has thought about getting their child in front of an agent, or of jump-starting a potential acting career, this is the chance to do it, right in their own backyard."
Dina Torre is the head of On-Camera for GenerationTV, a full service talent agency in New York City, which specializes in children through young adults. Torre's clients have performed in national commercials for such brands as Mastercard, Estee Lauder, Target, and McDonalds, and have done voiceovers for Dora the explorer, Nickelodeon promos and Disney animation. She also landed Robert Capron a leading role in Diary of a Wimpy Kid.
