Teen Acting Intensive: June 17th thru June 21st and June 24th thru June 28th
This two week intensive will focus on honing your acting skills that during musical theater productions you do not have enough time to devote.
Play Synopsis:
When the aging king of a Magical Kingdom (England) decides to split his empire between his three daughters, Cinderella, Belle, and the Snow Queen (who in no way resembles a copyrighted character), terrible tragedy ensues. Terrible, hilarious tragedy. Combining the gut-wrenching plot twists of Game of Thrones, and the soul-numbing despair of Shakespearean tragedy, this adaptation of King Lear will leave you dying with laughter as the body count mounts. When you play the Game of Tiaras, you win or you die.

This hands-on, fast-paced, crazy FUN two-week teen acting intensive boldly challenges and inspires each participant to explore voice, movement, improv and comedic timing to create well-defined, believable characters while encouraging a safe acting ensemble. Each exercise builds upon specific acting techniques that foster supportive, creative ensemble building to challenge each participant to deliver productive and fun rehearsals for the best performance possible. Participants will be required to read selected scripted shorts on the first day as part of the audition process. It is highly recommended that participants read through and be familiar with Game of Tiaras (one-act version) by Don Zolidis. The play may be read for free online at the
