Upcoming Classes

After school Acting Classes for Grades K-2 and 3-5. We have formed a partnership with the White Plains Recreation and Parks department to bring after school acting classes to White Plains residents.

SPRING 2019

Creative Drama: Acting Through Stories!

A creative, fun introduction to theatre using familiar stories as source material. Students go beyond the story and create new adventures using drama to tie together acting and early literacy skills. Different stories will be used in each session so repeat students will get a different experience.

Age Group: K – 2nd Graders

Day/Time: Fridays  4 pm

Spring Session Begins: April 12 (6 sessions – April 12, 26, May 3, 10, 17, 31 – no class April 19, May 24)

Location: White Plains Performing Arts Center

Fee: $90

Once purchased, there are no refunds given for this program. Workshops are subject to minimum registration.

Acting on the Fly!

We use improv games and formats to create scenes without scripts. Our class is light-hearted and often funny while teaching quick-thinking acting skills. If you enjoy making things up on the spot, you’ll probably like this class.
