Share this timeless and enduring classic about the March sisters’ journey from childhood to maturity during the American Civil War. Audiences of all generations will enjoy acquainting — or reacquainting — themselves with the sisters: Meg, the eldest; Jo, the high-spirited tomboy; Amy, the self-centered beauty; and gentle Beth, as well as their beloved Marmee and Father. Together the March family learns to endure both good times and bad as they share the joys and pains of growing up. Students in this class will study advanced acting as they work on character development, physicality, tapping into emotions while improving their acting skills as they communicate and bring to life this touching story.
Please note that to continue keeping our students safe, we are resuming with smaller class sizes. Because of this, children who enroll in our Production Class might not make it in. Auditions will determine who remains in the class. So please have your student prepare for their audition. If students enroll in the Production Class and do not make it in, students will be moved into Musical Theater and Act Up.
Audition information will be emailed to you upon registration.
Mondays 5:30-6:30 OR
