People’s Light theatre classes explore the skills every artist needs: curiosity, imagination, collaboration, empathy, and courage. Students learn a variety of tools and techniques to discover their most expressive selves both onstage and off. We typically offer fall, winter, and spring sessions for ages 5 through 18, summer programs for ages 7 through 18, and occasional adult acting classes throughout the year. Explore our current offerings below:
November 1 – December 6
Six Zoom sessions on Mondays, 6:30–8:30pm
A focused, ensemble approach to performing on-camera, this six-week online class is tailored to the adult participant excited to explore modern TV and film scripts. Actor McKenna Kerrigan uses her own experience to help students understand script structure, expand upon archetype, and practice techniques that quickly get to the heart of character. This class will teach the technical parameters of acting on-camera, while also creating a class culture of curiosity and experimentation.
During fall 2021 our Youth Classes are on a brief hiatus. After over a year of many virtual offerings and 11 consecutive weeks of outdoor programming during summer 2021, we are taking a pause to reorganize our education department, roster of teaching artists, and prepare for new opportunities ahead. We currently intend to resume in-person classes in January 2022. If you have a specific interest or wish for a young person, group, or community space in your life, please let us know what you’re seeking by calling 610-647-1900 ext. 137 or emailing ArtsDiscovery@peopleslight.org.
