10-Week Process Class | Grades 6-12

Wednesdays June 8-August 10 | 5:30 – 6:30 PM | $170

Get a taste of stardom and explore the process of theatre training through high-energy theatre games, improvisation and activities with very limited memorization required.  Create characters, explore dramatic interpretation of classic stories, learn lingo and challenge your imagination and expression.  Every class will include a variety of dramatic activities and training styles. Since there’s no play to rehearse, every class is fresh and exciting.

These classes are especially good for students

  • who are most interested in honing acting skills
  • who may have many other activities to balance and don’t have time for a lot of at-home memorization
  • who become bored with repetition

June 27-July 1 | 1:30 – 4:30 PM | $170
July 18-22 | 9:15 AM – 12:15 PM | $170

More of a curriculum-based Process Acting camp.

Hogwarts Secondary | Grades 6-12

June 20-24 | 9:00 AM – NOON | $170
July 11-15 | 9:15 AM – 12:15 PM | $170

Develop acting skills while exploring characters and themes from J. K. Rowling’s wildly popular HARRY POTTER books.  Learn to wield a wand, practice some of the basics of Quidditch, avoid Boggarts and Dementors all while exploring the world of Hogwarts.  All the standard acting exercises will be used so performance skills are honed, but the students will be primarily exploring the world of Harry Potter in an interactive environment. We may visit Hogsmeade Village, study abroad at the American school, Ilvermorney, or even try to recapture some escaped Fantastic Beasts. So much to do and so little time (but we have some time-turners so we can all have even more fun)! This class is best enjoyed by students who have read or watched at the least the first Harry Potter story/movie.

Improv Bootcamp | Grades 6-12

June 6-10 | 1:15 – 4:15 PM | $170
July 11-15 | 1:15 – 4:15 PM | $170
July 25-29 | 1:15 – 4:15 PM | $170

Be bold! This class is focused on improvisation training and performance.  The objective is for the actor to become comfortable in acting without a script.  Benefits for the beginning, intermediate, new and returning student actors are:

  • Working as an independent actor, exploring all areas of acting without a script
  • Working in groups and learning how to “think on your feet” and perform without self-judgment.
  • New game formats are introduced for those with previous improv experience

A good class for those who want to further their scene study skills, character development skills, and stretch and explore their imagination and creativity.  Improvisation training improves performance skills– allowing students to receive all information around them before making choices of their own.  Be prepared to laugh and to laugh at yourself too!

Write/Direct/Act/Design/Produce | Grades 6-12

June 13-17 | 12:45 – 4:45 PM | $190   Less than 5 spots left!
July 18-22 | 1:00 – 5:00 PM | $190

How did we make that play?!  Find out through an all-encompassing process-based class!  Students will explore writing, directing, and acting by working together to create a one-of-a-kind performance. What do you love most about theatre?  Is it the magic of seeing the stories in your imagination come to life? Maybe you like putting the picture together as a whole?  Perhaps it is becoming a character and discovering their world?  Try on each hat- playwright, director and actor- and see which one is the best fit for you. You won’t know until you try!  If your child is “not an actor,” we can accommodate him/her in this class and they can focus on the non-performance elements for the production while still gaining social and collaborative skills.

Students who come into this class should already have experience with basic theatre concepts and terminology. This will allow the group to hone performance skills through high-energy theatre games, improvisation, and challenging activities without having to start at the beginning. But we’ll also explore playwriting, design and directing while learning what goes into producing a play.

Advanced Improv | Grades 6-12

July 31-August 10 | 6:30-8:30 PM | Traysie Amick | $75

This camp meets Sunday through Wednesday – no class on Thursday or Friday.

For previous Adliberation members only!  This class is only available to actors who have participated in Adliberation, SCCT’s Teen Improv Team.  Seasoned improv players will find new game formats and advanced storytelling concepts in this intensive setting.  With no need to review the basics of improv, these students are able to push into complex character development, commitment to setting, and clarity in storyline.  This fast-paced camp will offer a wonderful opportunity to dust off improvisation skills before Adliberation auditions this fall.
