A Note from the Directors of Children's Programming
Dear Parents and Guardians,
This year we are working hard to challenge each of our students individually and as an ensemble. Their are many different skill sets to be learned as an actor and LTW has created classes that will help your students advance to each new level. In order to achieve this goal we find that it's important to have each student in the proper grade level to learn and be challenged most efficiently. Below you will find our registration listings. Please look at the grade levels closely as they have changed from previous sessions. If you have any questions please contact Amanda Gremel or Stephen Frankenfield.

How to Audition

Auditioning can be nerve wracking and scary, especially if you haven’t had a lot of practice doing it. In this class we will help you gain the confidence that it takes to reach your goals of auditioning for that big role. We will focus on the importance of preparing yourself to get the part, improve your cold reading skills, create an actors resume, and develop a dynamic monologue. By the end of six weeks you will learn how to continually practice your art and find the determination it takes to keep going.

The Live Theatre Workshop’s OnStage! Education Department was developed and continues to develop as a center for teaching the theatre arts in a friendly and creative setting. Weekly classes and summer and winter drama day camps are taught by trained, experienced teachers, actors, and directors from the Tucson community. The program ranges from introducing theatre through the process of producing a script all the way to advanced technical and acting roles, as well as internships. The OnStage! Education program is a great place to begin and develop as a theatre artist.
