HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM with David Anderson of Walking the dog Theater. 

This term will focus on the art of acting, working toward a performance in May.  Students will build ensemble skills and deepen the craft of acting, with a focus on creating a performance together.  The student ensemble size and interest will decide which play(s) we will develop. 

The term will culminate in performances. Interested students in grades 9-12 will convene at Hawthorne Valley School on March 7th and will meet Mondays 3:00-5:30pm at HVS, with additional days to be added later.  The group will meet for about 12 sessions (not including break Mondays).  The play(s) will be performed May 12th and 13th.

The cost of the program is $200.  Minimum first payment at registration on March 7th is $50.  If you would like to give more than $200 towards the program, your additional contribution is fully tax-deductible and will support our scholarship fund for students in need of assistance.  Limited scholarship assistance is available.  If you would like to request a scholarship, please let me know before March 7.
