TYRO I & II: Beginner Acting Program, July 7-18

As part of the Centenary Stage Company’s mission to introduce and develop arts in education within the community, Tyro I and II is a two-week theatre arts program designed specifically for young thespians ages 6—11 years of age. Using structured theatre activities which focus on expression, confidence building and fun, young thespians will learn acting games and demonstrate improvisations inspired by fairy tales and folk tales. 

The TYRO Theatre program is led by CSC Education Director, Maria Brodeur, an actress and arts educator with experience in children’s theatre. Under the guidance of Ms. Brodeur, theatre arts interns assist with the program to gain experience in arts and education.

This 5-week* intensive program has been designed to meet the needs of beginning, intermediate and advanced performers interested in working in the theatre ages 8--18 years of age. The hands-on program utilizes both the classroom and the “production process” to train young people in the theatre arts. The program includes the production of musicals and one-act plays. The workshop director is Broadway, film and TV veteran Michael Blevins.

Once registered, students are guaranteed a part in at least one production and, depending on ability, experience, desire and commitment level, could feasibly appear in more than one production. Classes are broken up by age and ability. Students participate in a wide variety of subjects including theatre make-up, voice and diction, and radio and television production. No experience is necessary, however, applicants must complete an interview/audition for acceptance. New interested applicants can schedule an interview with the box office at 908-979-0900.
