This weekly afterschool program for creative teens offers ensemble-based acting training from a distinguished Tony and Drama-Desk Award-winning Off-Broadway theater company. Come join our artistic family, and learn rigorous acting technique in an accessible, cooperative environment.
SCENE 1 is divided into three periods: Fall, Spring, and Summer sessions. Fall and Spring are once-a-week afterschool meetings, with each semester being freestanding – ending in a fall and a spring performance – but also building on the previous one. The summer is a daily intensive over 3-4 weeks, culminating in a final performance of student work.
Students also have master classes with New Group artists such as Tony and Emmy Award Winner Cynthia Nixon (And Just Like That, The Gilded Age), Jasmine Cephas Jones and Sasha Hutchings of Hamilton, and Oscar nominee Jesse Eisenberg (Zombieland, Batman v Superman).
No theater experience required – but a willingness to stretch yourself is essential!
