It's time to learn something new on the stage with Theatre Victoria.
The theater is accepting registration for its fall and spring acting academy sessions. Students in first through eighth grades are eligible to participate in the 10-week course by Theatre Victoria's School of Performing Arts. Each once-a-week session will teach students about the theater through a hands-on approach.
Students in first through fourth grade will learn the basics of presentation, including movement, projection, voice and expression. This class emphasizes student creativity and imagination by retelling familiar stories and making up their own.
Older students in grades fifth through eighth will participate in role-playing activities with improvisation and character development with monologues and character scenes. This class will also include stage terminology, audition techniques, vocal projections and movements for actors.
At the end of each session, students will demonstrate their new skills in a small performance for an invited audience.
To register for the acting academies, contact the Theatre Victoria at 361-576-6277, ext. 1, or visit the Theatre Box Office at 214 N. Main St.
Tuition is $130 for the Tuesday class and $170 for the Thursday class. Tuition for the fall and spring combo is $185 for Tuesday class and $255 for Thursday class. Prices include a $35 nonrefundable registration fee per student.
