Online Summer Acting Programs


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.

Our online programs are an excellent opportunity for students with all different levels of acting experience. In a fun, high-energy environment, students will learn fundamental theater theories through live-stream and recorded presentations, individual and group activities, coaching from theater and film industry working professionals, and offline supplemental resources. We help students build self-confidence while learning from working professionals in the theater and film industries, and making new friends.
