Youth Conservatory 2019
now accepting enrollment
Portland Actors' Conservatory has announced the opening of Youth Conservatory 2019 for children ages eight to 18. Workshops include hands-on training from accomplished acting professionals.
The Youth Devised Workshop runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 15 through 31.
The 1½ week devised theatre course focused on empowering and developing student voices; building an ensemble, teaching basic acting skills and creating a student written piece of theater. A theme will be chosen to write and focus the show. Students can write monologues, scenes, comedy, drama, songs, poetry, spoken word or even create movement pieces. The idea is to begin discovering one's artistic voice, and find the form through which to express that voice. The only "requirement" for the program is the desire to speak, and the courage to be heard.
The final performance will contain a piece written by every student. The building of the pieces for performance will be with the entire ensemble.
The workshop meets at 3121 SW Moody Ave. in Portland.
Enrollment fee is $500. To learn more and to register call 503-274-1717.
