Young Actors Workshop
A collaborative class by Saugatuck Center for the Arts, Saugatuck-Douglas District Library, and Saugatuck Public Schools Community Rec.
Hosted at the Saugatuck-Douglas District Library
Join us as we create and perform an original adaptation of a children’s book. Campers will try their hand at playwriting while exploring the tools of the actor, learning the basics of performance, playing theatre games, and connecting with each other. The camp culminates in a performance for families and friends on the last day of camp.
Exploring drama helps children build confidence, learn to express themselves, and collaborate in an ensemble, while having a whole lot of fun! Whether your child is brand new to performing, or this is just one of many experiences, we promise to meet your child right where they are.
