We are thrilled to announce an acting and dance Audition Workshop for Peter Pan on Saturday, April 1st from 1:00-3:00 pm. We will be offering the workshop at no charge to give everybody auditioning for Peter Pan an opportunity to exercise their imaginations and engage their bodies to be prepared to give a great audition! Although it is not required, we would love to see as many of you as possible!
The 2-hour session will be broken up into two parts - Acting and Dance. During the Acting portion, we will be focusing on acting techniques, warm up exercises and learning the skills in creating a character. Bring clothes that are comfortable to move in and wear sneakers! No previous acting experience needed for the workshop!!!
The Dance portion will be led by Peter Pan's Choreographer Jake Boyce. It will be a combination of steps and basic choreography technique. This will be a great way to get rid of any dancing jitters prior to auditions! No dance experience required!
