Bricks and mortar theatres and performance venues may be closed, but that does not mean theatre has stopped. MCA is excited to announce a special opportunity for youth in grades 2nd-5th that can be safely executed from the comfort of their own home. Young actors will have the opportunity to perform in the premiere of an original play designed to be performed virtually. This theatre production is uniquely designed to use the arts to develop important theatre and life skills such as communication, self-confidence, creativity, as well as foster social connection. Below are the program details.
Fight off the winter doldrums and get ready to step into the spotlight while staring in a virtual play. Young actors have the opportunity to perform in an original play written by Saint Mary’s University Alumni, Daniel Collette. Additionally, you will also learn fun acting warm-ups, games, and performance techniques that every actor should know.
