The Studio Theatre Acting Conservatory is currently accepting applications for our Summer 2013 Young Actors Scholarship! This scholarship seeks to provide aspiring young artists ages 12-17 the opportunity to take part in our newly-expanded, full-day Young Actors Program for the reduced fee of $20.

In one of our two 3-week sessions, each student will begin their day with specialized instruction in Voice, Movement, and Improvisation. They’ll receive acting training using theatre games, improvisations, ensemble work, monologues, and scene study from both contemporary and classical literature to further enhance students’ performance skills. On the final day of the program, the students will then showcase their work for family and friends in our Final Scenes presentation.

CITY AT PEACE Washington, D.C.

Summer Street Theatre

This six week program allows participants to examine some of the issues facing young people in the DMV and gives them tools for creating steps toward positive change.   Youth ages 14-21 are eligible.

Youth will also receive training from adult professionals in the areas of acting, singing, dancing, stage management, sound design, wardrobe and costumes, set and properties design, marketing and promotions and leadership development. 

The program will culminate in an original musical written and performed by the participants for audiences, outside and in recreation centers across the city. 

This program runs Monday thru Friday from 10am until 4pm.  It begins Monday, June 27, 2011 and ends Friday, August 5, 2011.  It is open to young people from DC, Maryland and Virginia.  There is no cost to participate.

 

The audition process is simple.  There is nothing to prepare.  There are survey forms to fill out, theatre games, a simple dance combination and some singing.  We supply all of the work.  We don’t accept applicants based on talent alone.  We are looking for young people who are interested in working together to find solutions to the problems facing our society and their lives.  All your young people need do is be willing to go through the process and be able to commit.

If there are any young people you would suggest, no matter how large the number, please encourage them to come to these auditions.  We are a very diverse cast and accept all ethnicities.

 

Location

City at Peace is located inside the Atlas Performing Arts Center, 1333 H Street NE, Washington, DC 20002.  Call us at 202.399.7993 ext. 156 or email us at sholloway@cityatpeacedc.org or check out our website, www.cityatpeacedc.org .
