Actor Training

June 13 - July 28, 2022

Throughout the six-week intensive training program, students meet Monday through Friday from 9:30 am to noon in intimate classes of 10-18 students. Audition/Interview appointments begin in April.

  • Acting Classes
    Actor training is taught by working professionals who are also talented, qualified teachers. Work from these classes is presented one evening at the Lesher Center for the Arts at the end of the six-week period.

  • Two Elective Classes
    Each student may choose two electives in addition to their core classes. Recent elective classes have included: voice and speech, physical theatre, clowning, puppetry, improvisation, Commedia dell'Arte, Shakespeare, directing, audition technique, movement, playwriting, and musical theatre.

  • Master Classes
    Once each week students participate in a Master Class on different topics. Recent master classes have included: stage combat and swordplay, dance, an audition with Center REP's casting director, theatre make-up, stage management, voice-over, theatre history, and panel discussions with theatre professionals.

Before Young REP, I had no ambition or motivation.  I didn’t know where I was going because I did not know who I was. Now, after my experience with Young REP, I know who I am and what I want to do. I know where I want to go and how unlimited my talents and abilities are for getting me there. I have been inspired!”
