What do eggplants, astronauts, and customer service have in common? They are all KEY themes of one of our Online Productions this fall!

Ages 10-15 (older or younger can message us to participate!)

Description:
Everyone at NASA thinks that Dr. Weaver's Mars colony is a joke, because it's full of average joes instead of astronauts. Their mission? To grow the first eggplant on Mars. As Dr. Weaver takes reports from the self-appointed experts, disappointed sci-fi fans, and customer service nightmares that inhabit the colony under the leadership of the arrogant Commander, the mission starts to seem impossible. But could there be more to the story than they're letting on? Written especially for actors to perform on video chat, Do You Read Me? is a space comedy about community.

Come practice your monologues with the amazing Taylor Body! THIS SATURDAY AT 2pm!
.


Tired of going from audition to audition not knowing if what you’re doing is “good” or “right”? Tired of picking a monologue that was easy to find and memorize just because it was the first thing you found? We’re here to help you change that for next time. Led by Taylor Body, students will share monologues and performance strategies while receiving individualized feedback. Taylor will use her experience and guidance to show students how to best perform their monologues. Students will learn how to pick monologues that best fit their auditions and their personalities. This is a great way for students to practice for upcoming auditions and work as a group to give constructive critiques.
.
This class is part of our Pay What You Decide initiative. Any profits will go toward our scholarship program. We were able to help FIVE students this summer with our scholarship program! Any amount helps!

After having so much fun in our Improv class last week, we had some students ask us how to practice improv at home. We have decided to start a Writing Prompt Program. (Now accepting cool name ideas). We will put out a writing prompt every week. Students will submit them through a google form and will be anonymous. We will then select one prompt to highlight each week. Our end result should be a collection of small stories and writings that we can share on our website and with our friends. Possibly even publish into a book! So who’s interested???!!!
.
These prompts can be as short or as long as you like. Preferably 3-5 sentences but the goal here is to write something, ANYTHING.
.
Today’s spark word is: Chain Reaction.
.
What story can you write, who’s perspective can you show based off of the thoughts sparked from the words “chain reaction”.
Let’s see what you can think of!
Dm us for the google form link!

We will be helping the students to do cold readings, sides, character work, slates, monologue presentation, and resume building.

This is a wonderful chance for students to practice, gain confidence, try out new tactics, and gain confidence in front of directors and actors. Directors will be providing feedback and tips to all participants.
