Young Performers, Level 1 Thursdays, 4-5p 25 17

Each semester, Young Performers will mount an original one-act production. This year, Ms. Jan returns to the Young Performers classroom where she will help these young actors become more self-confident and self-aware as they learn to communicate better.

Young Performers focuses on theatre skills such as projection, memorization, stage presence, and teamwork, and the weekly workshop format is ideal for the busy family and the even busier child. Also, the training is invaluable for younger students looking to shine in principle roles in SYAA's CenterStage productions.

In the past, we have announced the theme of the one-act production prior to the start of the semester. However, this semester, the class will get to pitch their show ideas to Ms. Jan during the first class sessions before they decide on an official theme for their December showcase
