Pacific Resident Theatre Announces their Free Youth Conservatory for Grades 1 - 12

Multi-award winning Pacific Resident Theatre, in their 34th year as one of the top regional companies in the country, is now offering a brand new resource to children in the Los Angeles area. The PRT Youth Conservatory is a full-time year-round program serving students up to 18 years of age, and completely free of charge for all students.

The work that is done by the Conservatory is made possible in part by a grant from the Mose J. and Sylvia Dilman Firestone Charitable Trust. Registration is open now and interviews are being scheduled for the summer session as well.

A variety of classes will be available for children in grades 1 - 12, including Acting/Storytelling, Puppetry, Improvisation, Acting Technique, Commercial Acting, and Shakespeare.

Pacific Resident Theatre Youth Conservatory was founded to inspire young people to discover and express their artistic voices through the study of theatre. The mission of the Conservatory is an extension of Pacific Resident Theatre's overall commitment to instilling an appreciation for literacy and humanity in our audience and the audiences of the future. The company believes that the study of theatre, and the related crafts of acting, directing, dramatic writing, and design, will give young people tools that will empower them to tell stories that can change their lives and impact the world.

Pacific Resident Theatre is nationally recognized as one of the top regional theaters in the country. The company presents works of the highest quality, in order to entertain, inform and educate its multicultural community. In addition to the company's commitment to rediscover the rarely performed classics, PRT is focused on fostering and developing new works through the collaboration of an artistic ensemble influenced by societal relevance, past, present and future. Pacific Resident Theatre promotes the theatre arts by providing opportunities for artists and craftsmen to develop and enrich their skills.

Instructors for "Spring Session" include: Peter Kors, Ellen Schulze, Donna DuBain, Ava Himmel, and Abigail Marks teaching classes such as Acting/Storytelling, Puppetry, Improvisation, Acting through Improvisation, Acting: The Creative Actor, and Commercial Acting.
