About The Event
ORIGINAL CHARACTERS - TWEENS
Be sure to choose the ticket for the time slot you prefer. We're limiting these classes to 3 or 4 kids in order to maintain social distance guidelines.
ABOUT THE CLASS:
For kids who are interested in comedic acting, this 4-week class is a fun and productive way to develop the creative performing skills that networks like Nickelodeon and Disney seek out! They even ask for original characters at their open auditions and they seek out kids who produce their own comedic content. This could be the first video on your child's demo reel or YouTube channel.
After working with so many kids on comedic characters, I've found that one additional outcome is that, throughout the process, actors find more of a comfort on camera. As a result, their auditions end up feeling more grounded because they've been encouraged to fully express themselves and are no longer as worried about "doing it right."
