Young Actors Professional Intensive (YAPI) 2013
If you’re a teen who’s interested in a summer full of theater classes, intense learning, and a lot of fun, call the Studio to set up a YAPI audition/interview. Students spend six weeks immersed in college-level theater classes including Audition Technique, Acting for the Camera, Scene Study, Shakespeare, Combat, Improvisation, Musical Theater, The Business and more. Faculty is made up of professional educators and artists. A showcase is presented for an invited audience on the final weekend. YAPI is open to actors 13-19 years old and students are grouped by age and experience. Admission is by audition only.
