APT A.C.T. Camp

A.C.T. (Acting for Classical Theatre) Camp

2015 Camp Offerings



The cost of this weekend program is $425. The registration form for the Intensive can be found by clicking here.

The Weekend Acting Intensive session is designed for campers age 15-19, and we will accept 18 campers for an in-depth exploration of sonnets.

Treating the sonnets like monologues, the students will explore each aspect of their sonnet in preparation for the final presentation. The Intensive instructors will use a myriad of training techniques to help the students unlock new ways of thinking about their piece. Viewpoints (Adv. Viewpoints for those who took the Intensive last year) will be just one of the approaches we use. Others will be Meisner, Roy Hart, Linklatter, LeCoq, Text Analysis, Movement, etc. Each student will be given a sonnet to memorize before coming to camp.
