Do you like acting? Then here is the class for you! In this class we will be working on improvisation activities and monologues. Students will also learn how to overcome the fear of stage fright. They will demonstrate skills leanred in classes by working together to put on a 20 minute play. The first three classes will consist of developing skills in acting and the remainder of classes will be rehearsals for the play. Lastly, students will be putting on a performance for the community.

Instructor: Sofia Talbot
Sofia Talbot is a senior at the East Bay Met School in Newport. Part of the learning plan for school at the MET school is working on projects based on students' passions. Sofia is interested in performing arts and one of her projects this year is teaching an acting class at the JAC. She has an internship with Patrick Grimes who is the artistic director of Marley Bridges Theater Company in Newport. Her objective for her class is to bring teens together who have similar interests in theater and acting to teach them what she has learned by interning with her mentor. She hopes to give her students the courage and confidence to perform.
A big thank you to the East Bay MET School!
