This workshop will take young actors on an awesome, self-empowering theatrical adventure. Racking through a menu of voice and movement skills, actors write group texts, learn choral actions and become collaborators in an instant theatre company. Participants stand in an imaginary spotlight where they may clearly speak their own truths by writing lines and playing themselves. Each session includes a short performance. Recommended for children ages 6 to 11 years old.
