Playhouse on Park Offering Acting Program for Grades 5-8 this Fall

The new school year is beginning and so are acting classes at Playhouse on Park. The theatre is offering a year-long acting program, called the Actor Performance Training Program, for students in grades 5-8. This program will be held on Tuesdays, from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm. Each student will present an informal improvisation showcase in December, and will be featured as an actor in a final performance in May.

This program will focus on developing a student's acting technique in a comfortable and professional setting. The first part of the year will focus on in-depth improvisation work, while the second part will focus on audition techniques. This program will conclude with a devised performance piece where students will continue their acting training by creating, rehearsing, and performing an original script. The instructor for this program is Dawn Loveland, the Director of Education at Playhouse on Park.

Registration is required; class size is limited, and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. This class is for fifth graders who have already taken a Playhouse on Park acting class and have permission from the instructor, plus all sixth through eighth grade students. For more information on this program, visit, call 860-523-5900 x10 or email
