SOOP Announces Virtual Summer Workshop Schedule

Although we're stuck home away from the theater, SOOP Theatre Company will bring the theater to you with their "Virtual" Summer Workshops! These workshops in SOOP's Road To Pro program invite real-world industry professionals- broadway actors, acting coaches, casting associates, and more to come work with the students to expand their purview on the entertainment industry. If you or your child are interested in acting, performing, or entertainment as a career, these workshops will be the perfect jumpstart into the ins and outs of the industry. SOOP is offering four workshops over the course of the summer for comedic acting, acting and vocal coaching, and two casting workshops for students in both high school and college!
