Acting Academy teaches the basic techniques of acting while rehearsing in preparation to perform a fully formed theatre production. Included are technical theatre workshops, stage makeup workshops, dance workshops, and music. This program culminates in May with three performances, free and open to the public. Acting Academy will run from Monday, October 15 and run through Thursday, May 9 from 3-6pm. Transportation from school and to the nearest bus stop will be provided. If your student participates in other after-school activities, we can work with that schedule with enough advance notice. Registration must be completed by Monday, October 8 to be enrolled in the program. Open to any student registered at any Schenectady City School middle school.
