What are the benefits in taking part in an acting camp?
There are many benefits. One is it gets kids used to talking in front of a group. This builds confidence. Another, it is a healthy way to express yourself. You also learn teamwork because you rely on your crew and your fellow cast members.
Did you write this play?
Yes, I grew up watching soap operas with my grandmother when I was home sick. Later on, when I was training in Massachusetts, I met several actors that were working on Soap Operas and they were very interesting people. I also know that a lot of actors we admire today, started out on soaps. I just think it will be fun to teach that exaggerated style of acting. There are a lot of comedic moments to explore both as a director and as a playwright.
What are the ages for your camps?
I'm taking 4 year olds to 18 year olds. I really like having several ages in one class. Older campers get the benefit of mentoring the younger ones. The younger students look up to the older ones. I am even allowing my private students who adults, to participate. I tell all adults that they will have to work really hard to out act the younger children. Adults have to remember what children do naturally.
