Young Actors’ Showcase Spring 2022

The Not-So-Grimm Adventures

Ages 7-8  |  In-Person


COVID Safety Guideline: Please be assured that all in-person programs will follow strict safety protocols required by George Mason University and are subject to pivoting to all virtual platforms if health and safety conditions warrant. Required protocols will include masks, physical distancing, Mason COVID health checks, and more. Please visit our COVID Safety Guidelines for all in-person programs.

Our Young Actors’ Showcase will perform an original play featuring classic Brothers Grimm fairy tales and characters, and inspired by Into the Woods!

This 90-minute class provides a more advanced option for our growing young actors. With a final presentation featuring classic characters, the Young Actors will have the opportunity to share their work in a final presentation at the end of the session.
This class builds on the basics introduced in our Mini Actors’ Showcase, concentrating on story-structure, characterization, the creative process, and acting techniques. Our young actors will experience a more realized performance, including technical elements.

Students are expected to attend all rehearsals and their performance.

Our Young Actors’ Showcase is an excellent training ground for our musical showcases! It is a recommended prerequisite for our Musical Showcase program, and we recommend a minimum of two sessions at this level of study.
