BLUE HILL, Maine — For 38 years the New Surry Theatre and Performing Arts School has made acting lessons the foundation of its success.
Parents and their children have come to work together as they share a learning experience; teachers have come to learn how to become more effective. Actors have come to grow in their craft and others enroll just to have fun as they learn more about themselves.
The 10-week semester of the Performing Arts School in the Blue Hill Town Hall Theatre will begin on Monday, Sept. 13, and culminate in a performance the week of Nov. 15.
These courses will be offered to adults, seniors and young adults, age 12-80.
– Experimental Filmmaking, 6:30-8:30 Mondays.
– The Craft of Acting as Truth, 6:30-8:30 p.m. Tuesdays.
– Theatre Make-up, 6:30-8 p.m. Tuesdays.
– Swashbuckling Sword Fighting, 6:30-8:30 p.m. Wednesdays.
– Stage Combat, 6:30-8:30 p.m. Thursdays.
– Scene Study/Directing, 6:30-8:30 p.m. Fridays.
Each 10-week session is $300 for one class, $150 for a second class.
There are family scholarships available, made possible by a grant from the Quimby Family Foundation, as well as scholarships based on need.
Educators will be able to receive three CEU credits. Visit www.newsurrytheatre.org for more details or call NST artistic director Bill Raiten, 374-5057.
