The Acting Foundation Course for Kids will teach young actors basic voice and performance skills. Each week is dedicated to the exploration of a fundamental performance concept, taught through activities and games. Students will gain self-confidence and understanding about theatre acting, and most of all, they’ll have fun!

Based on a pilot project we ran last year, the Capitol Theatre is adding a community theatre acting program called Footlights Academy to our established community programming. Currently we offer community and youth engagement in live theatre through our Summer Youth Education program and the Christmas Pantomime. Footlights Academy will offer a mentorship opportunity for children, youth and adults to engae in learning theatre skills. The mentors are professional instructors and actors. This program introduces a new artistic experience to Nelson and area. We will have 10 participants per session. The program will take place on the Capitol Theatre stage and will culminate in a final showcase where actors share their new skills with each other.

Segment II “Acting Out Stories” is for ages 15-18 years old and takes place in June 2019
