Acting Ensemble - Grades 4-8

In these sessions, young people are encouraged to do work as actors that is brave, specific, and nuanced. Our Acting Ensembles are for young people who are ready to hone their craft during a focused rehearsal process and learn new techniques to embody characters, investigate text and take charge of their technique. Programming is sophisticated while staying true to the Child’s Play NY ethos of imagination and individual expression. The ensemble has a live performance on the final Friday of camp.

Camps for 2023 include Nevermore Academy, meeting at 138 South Oxford Street in Fort Greene. Campers will also visit South Oxford Playground and Fort Greene Park.

Nevermore Academy

$725 Per Child

August 21 – 25 | Fort Greene

Tap into your spookiest persona (from twisted Wednesday to excitable Enid) as you navigate the halls of Nevermore Academy, uncovering the mysteries that haunt your school and family. Play games, translate secret messages from Thing, and battle the Hyde in a final showdown. Part acting class, part improv class, kids will rehearse iconic scenes from the show, devise new scenes of werewolves and gorgons, and learn the dances of the Rave’N Ball. The scenes are performed live on Friday, August 25.
