Your Body On Stage: A Body Empowerment Workshop for the Young Performer with Katie Gall and Monique Peaslee Foote

Sunday, February 26th
Rep North | 10:00am-12:00pm | Ages 13-18 | $35
Get comfortable moving on stage in your body.  One of the most powerful tools an actor has is the ability to understand physicality and how to use it.  In this workshop, you will use song lyrics and/or monologues to explore movement on stage, awareness of your body and other actors, and how to maintain these skills in different roles.

Students should prepare and bring a monologue or song lyrics (from a musical) with them.

Perfecting the Audition with Rachel Pantazis:

Monday, March 20th
Rep North | 6:00-8:00pm | Ages 13-18 | $35 

The best preparation for a college, theatre, or local audition is in performing it in front of a group. By doing so, you can practice performing with your normal nervous jitters and not worry that it’s your “one shot to wow.” By signing up for this masterclass you get a chance to perform in front of your peers and receive feedback in vocal production, breath engagement, and acting choices.
Students attending the masterclass must prepare a memorized song (maximum 4 minutes long), and will be required to perform the piece.   An accompanist will be provided.
