HSA Summer Theatre Intensive 2020
HSA Summer Theatre Intensive is a fun and immersive experience exploring all facets of being an actor. Taught by working professionals and culminating in an original performance based on their own stories and personal experiences. Actors will be involved in character development, blocking scenes, staging their own writing, acting, improvisation and script editing. Students will also have the opportunity to closely work with an in-house playwright that will be building an original story based on the writing that is produced in the first week. In an effort to shape a well versed actor, students will work with an experienced Vocal performing artist and a Choreographer that will help them develop and shape their performance technique. As a way to link what we teach during this intensive to the real Performance world, there will be field trip opportunities to see live theatre in New York as an ensemble. The intensive runs for three weeks Monday through Friday, with a final performance open to the public on July 24th at 4pm.
