SO YOU WANT TO BE A THEATRE MAJOR?
ONE-DAY WORKSHOP FOR PARENTS AND STUDENTS!
Ages 15-18, and parents too!
Feb 6, 2016 (Sat morning), 10:30am-12pm

For students considering a career in the arts, one of the hardest decisions of all can be choosing a college and major– especially in the world of theatre, where there are hundreds of paths to pursue, and hundreds more colleges to choose from. In conjunction with Sage Studio and WIlliams Street Repertory, we are proud to offer a new program for high school students, led by two former theatre majors–one who now works as a professional stage manager, the other as a working professional actor and theatre instructor–to help demystify this process. The instructors will answer questions from students (and parents), talk about their own experiences, and help guide students toward the career path that’s best for them–as well as the best ways to approach those challenging entrance auditions and interviews. Parents welcome and encouraged to attend!

Tuition: $25 (parents are free!)

Pre-requisites: None.

Application deadline for all winter classes is December 19, 2015.

Tuition for all SAGE Studio classes and workshops are capped at $100 thanks to the generous support of the Foglia Family Foundation.
