Scene Study and Performance Skills
(Gr. 7-12)

Scene Study and Performance Skills classes are designed to take students on a journey exploring a professional play, from script to performing scenes. It is aimed towards Drama School students who want to expand their acting experience and abilities by working with professional plays.

Students will…

  • Learn how to read and perform with a script
  • Work with their peers to explore two-hander and group scenes
  • Be directed by a professional director
  • Expand on their learning from their standard YPT drama class and add new tools to their actor’s tool kit
  • Develop their theatrical performance skills, have fun, and perform a scripted scene on a YPT stage at the end of the session!

Scene Study and Performance Skills (Grade 7-12) is designed as a supplementary program for students in the standard Gr. 7-12 class who are interested in further building their theatrical skills. Enrolling in the standard Gr. 7-12 class is highly recommended as it provides the foundation for expanding their learning in this additional class.

Please note this class price includes tax. If your child is 14 years old or younger, tax will be refunded to you. Box Office will contact you to provide this refund within 48 hours of purchase.
