Description

The Englert Theatre is proud to announce its inaugural youth acting camp ACTING OUT!, welcoming incoming 5th and 6th graders for the week of August 6th – 11th.

Join instructor Cara Clonch Viner and Englert events director and University of Iowa Theatre Arts Department alumna Jessica Egli in a two-course program utilizing improvisation to explore character development. Students may choose to participate in either the morning or afternoon course, or both. Hosted at the Englert Monday, August 6 through Friday, August 10. Both courses prepare students for a performance for family and friends on Saturday, August 11 (time TBA).

Morning Course
9 a.m. to noon
A course in acting focused on movement and improvisation in preparation for the performance of an improvised scene with a partner (or partners) based on one of the exercises learned in class.

Lunch Hour
Noon to 1 p.m.
Students should bring their own lunch. Lunch will not be provided, but complimentary bottled water will be available.

Afternoon Course
1 to 4 p.m.
A course in acting focused on voice, communication and character development through which each student invents an original character and writes a monologue for that character to present at the performance.

Students attending both courses will perform in two pieces – an improvised scene with a partner and an original character monologue. Each class is capped at 20 students.
