Our Junior Players program continues into the Fall 2016 with a workshop giving the opportunity for more individual work for our developing actors, and continuing in the winter with a staged musical performance!

The Workshop begins in the fall and will focus on more individual and small group work to include performance and vocal techniques; acting opportunities; audition techniques and practice; as well as movement and dance culminating in a workshop performance.

INFO FOR Fall/Winter/Spring Workshops
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT AUDITIONS
Auditions are an important part of the theater experience. Performers registered for our Junior Players can audition for parts during the first week of the program. We will be teaching good audition techniques as part of the program, however, auditions will be held in a non-stressful, supportive and fun environment towards the end of the
first week. We encourage all members to audition for the experience, but auditioning for a part is voluntary.
All performers will be cast in the show!
This program begins with improvisation and basic audition techniques. Students may then audition for a singing or speaking role. Auditions are voluntary.
(see note about auditions)
The program continues with rehearsals involving singing, acting and dance experience for all participants culminating in a small, staged musical!
Stephanie Tornatore-Bannon will be
back running the program again, assisted by
Sylvia Davidowitz (assistant director & dance specialist) and Adam Bannon, assisting with yoga/meditation practice as a tool for overcoming inhibitions and audition anxiety, as well as releasing the students’ creativity as performers.
The program will run as follows:
Sessions: Fridays - Feb. 17th to May 12th
(No rehearsal on April 14th)
Time: 4 pm - 6:15 pm
Where: Main Street Center for the Arts,
124 S. Pomperaug Avenue, Woodbury
