2009 Summer Theater Workshops

Blue Apple Players offers young people a nurturing and noncompetitive environment for exploring drama. Our focus is on building skills while having fun. If you already like to act or want to learn, these workshops are for you!

Classes are designed for both new and continuing students and focus on developing the tools for the actor: body, voice and imagination. To ensure personal attention, space is limited to 16 participants with two teaching artists per class. All workshops will take place at the Crescent Hill United Methodist Church at 201 South Peterson Avenue (corner of Frankfort Avenue).

All summer workshop participants will receive a free Blue Apple Players t-shirt and two free admissions to a Blue Apple Players’ show in the 2009-2010 season.
