Our Theater in the Park programs give young actors an opportunity to explore all aspects of performance with an outdoor showcase performance. Whereas Young Professionals is ideal for both beginners and advanced students to practice their craft in different theatrical concentrations (auditioning, commercials, tv/film, theatre, movement, voice, scenes, monologues and improv).  

The Young Professionals group is purely process-driven where students can find their own artistic voice in a collaborative and creative environment.  This workshop provides a great alternative for students unable to make the commitment to a production but allows them to purely "play and practice".  This series is also suited for young actors who have an Agent or seeking representation. 

Directed by LJ Woodard (SAG) of the Performance Club plus some invited industry professionals for further insight to these future young professionals! Performance Club is an ideal program to prepare your performer for the stage or screen in a positive atmosphere while having fun!

This Performance Club class is ideal for the slightly more serious performer.  Utilizing contemporary scenes and monologues plus improvisational workouts, this weekly class will never be dull!  But an energy boost of creative freedom and expansion into a craft that will serve them well.  These skills can take any performer far whether they pursue acting professionally or other professions where communication, public speaking and leadership is key.
FOR AGES 9/10-TEEN!  Email Director, LJ Woodard directly for a registration form, qualifications and tuition details. Class size is limited to 10 max! Drops in welcome! 


Parents love the rehearsal schedule!  The atmosphere is fun, positive and covers all aspects of performance!
