Build character by exploring character.

Our acting classes will give you a warm, fun, supportive environment in which you can explore Acting technique and method, including speech, movement and individual investment. Using age-appropriate material as you take on various roles, you will begin to understand the importance of character both on the stage and in life as well. As you work toward a performance at the end of each semester, we will guide you in developing the skills and the self-awareness it takes to play your role confidently, no matter what it may be.

ACTING

All of our Acting classes aim to help students gain confidence on stage. Students use physicality, voice, and posture to bring characters to life, while exploring their personality, conflicts, motivations, desire and more. Most classes include some improvisation work and many include script work. 

MIDDLE SCHOOL IMPROV

Improvisation helps actors think on their feet, connect with their scene partners, and gain confidence on stage. This class explores improv in a fun, fast-paced environment using different exercises and theatre games.

ACTING FOR THE CAMERA

Explore acting for the camera in a dynamic setting where you will be both in front of a camera and behind it — and encouraged to take risks. With the help of television and film scripts, you will learn by looking through the lens and exploring camera techniques, acting exercises, blocking and audition material.

ACTING II

There’s no better introduction to the work of an Actor. In this class, you’ll begin to explore and recognize your voice, body, emotions, and creativity as necessary tools for the craft of acting.

CTA THEATER COMPANY

As a member of the CTA Theater Company, you’ll learn more than just the theater piece you and your ensemble members prepare for public performance. Through the rehearsal process, you’ll learn agency, self-reliance, and collaboration. In short – you’ll be learning the techniques, skills, and responsibility used by professional actors in the real world; skills you can apply in a theatrical career and beyond!
