Summer Arts at Mason 2022

Acting for Young People (AFYP), the theater program of Mason Community Arts Academy, has provided actors of all ages with professional-level training in a supportive and fun environment since 1997. Through this training, our actors develop skills that will serve them in all walks of life, on stage and off. Our faculty is made up of working professionals in the industry – actors, directors and teaching artists who are constantly honing their skills through their creative endeavors and bringing those skills back to share with our students.

Please be assured that all in-person programs will follow strict safety protocols required by George Mason University.   Visit our COVID Safety Guidelines for more details. We will be routinely updating the information as it evolves. Stay informed by visiting our website and looking out for email alerts and other Academy communications.
