The Saturday Program at The Neighborhood Playhouse Junior School is dedicated to giving young actors of all levels of training the same rigorous, dynamic instruction offered in the adult conservatory and summer workshops & studios. All students train in the core principles of acting, singing, and dancing. Older students are introduced to the Meisner Technique, the foundation of acting taught at the Neighborhood Playhouse, and geared toward appropriate age levels. Young actors will use the skills learned in their acting classes and apply them to Scene Study, Voice & Speech, Song Interpretation, Dance, Auditioning, Acting for Film & Television, Commercials, and much more. For a detailed list of course descriptions, click here. * There is a one-time $50 application fee for new students. Please note that placement in Groups is at the discretion of the Junior School Director. Some ages and grades overlap. We keep grade, age, and maturity of the child in mind when placements are made.
"I'd like to congratulate you and your team! My kids are absolutely loving your program! In fact, my daughter, has decided to audition at some of the performing arts high schools in the city...Thanks again for giving my kids an enjoyable program." ~Beatriz C.
