Auburn Area Community Theatre (AACT) Academy - Spring

Improv - Improve - Using Improvisation Skills to Become a Better Actor with AACT. If this is your first time participating in a theater activity, or if you have been on stage many times this class is for you! We will explore the techniques of Improvisation. Theater and life skills will be learned and strengthened as we practice working together as an ensemble, being flexible, and learning to think on our feet. We will be using fun games and activities to accomplish these goals. This term we will include elements of Devised Theater, or Collective Creation to our weekly activities. This approach will empower young actors as they practice their communication skills, listening to others and expressing their thoughts clearly. Come create with us!
