We are thrilled to be able to offer two workshops over winter break for students in grades 8-12.

Theatre Master Classes and Workshops occur occasionally throughout the year and have short time frames for registration due the availability of the artist. In addition to local artists, PAA engages touring artists to the master class setting that want to help enhance our students experience in voice, dance, and acting.

In this workshop, Skyler will provide short scenes in which you will quickly learn how to adapt and create characters with confidence. By using scenes from shows she has previously worked on, you will get a true sense of what material from TV & Film looks like and how to accomplish bringing yourself while also staying true to the writing in this scene work.

Auditioning can be intimidating, however Skyler will give you shortcuts to navigating the room, setting the tone and leaving feeling hopeful about the process!
