Walking Fish Theatre to Offer Two Youth Acting Classes this Fall
Coming up, two sessions of acting classes at Walking Fish Theatre! Fun with Acting, a beginner's acting class for kids ages 7-10 and: Acting for Teens, ages 11-17. Both Fun with Acting andActing for Teens start Saturday, October 19 and go until Saturday, November 23, 2013 (see exact dates below) at Walking Fish Theatre, 2509 Frankford Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19125. Times for Fun with Acting: 10:00am-11:15am. Times for Acting for Teens: 11:30am-12:45pm. Cost is $60 for 6 weeks.
Taught by theatre veteran and teacher Kate McGrath, Fun with Acting will fire up the imagination and boost self-expression in a fun group atmosphere. Using improvisation, storytelling and theatre games students will learn how to use their bodies and voices to transform into a character, how to create dramatic conflict and reach creative and entertaining solutions. This session will end with a short presentation for parents and friends.
Acting for Teens is for those teens who love to do improv, work on scenes and monologues, and develop ensemble techniques. We'll do body work, vocal work and get down and dirty with the challenging job of breaking down and then shaping a scene to present to an invited audience. Join with a friend or just meet a whole bunch of new ones! Come prepared to move and get creative.
"This class was helped my daughter become less shy," says parent of Emma O'Neill, Kathy O'Neill "Emma has developed a lot of confidence in her own creations, and is not as afraid to talk to people anymore."
Walking Fish Theatre is the performance/workshop space for the community of Fishtown/Kensington. The theatre opened its doors for the first time ever August 31, 2008 for the 11th Annual Philly Fringe Festival.
