Acting Fall 2021 Showcases (In-Person)


Acting For Young People’s showcase program produces eight full and four mini productions each year, impacting over 180 students each session. These shows help young actors learn audition skills, participate in the rehearsal process, learn dramatic structure, learn voice and movement techniques, and gain confidence while performing for an audience.

Students will have the opportunity to interact with instructors and other students in a fun, high-energy environment, students will receive hands-on instruction and coaching from theater and film industry working professionals and collaborate with other actors.

AFYP and Mason Community Arts Academy have joined forces to bring you the absolute best in theatre, music, and art instruction!
