Acting, Voice and Filmmaking Workshops for Children and Teens at Regis College
Kids and teens interested in acting, filmmaking or musical theater can develop their skills, learn from industry professionals and gain valuable performance experience this summer at a variety of high-caliber workshops presented by The Drama-Play Connection at Regis College in Weston.
Seventeen different workshops are being offered. Most are limited to 10 students and meet one afternoon a week for six weeks during July and August. Subjects range from singing, acting, improvisation, voice-overs, comedy and audition preparation to screenwriting, costume design, special effects and film editing. Instructors include award-winning producer and director Gabrielle Savage Dockterman, director of the 2006 film Missing In America starring Danny Glover. Dockterman will teach a five-session workshop on film production and directing.
The broad range of workshops being offered is an expansion of the summer camp for children and teens that The Drama-Play Connection has been operating at Regis since 2004. The camp was originally created to teach social skills and confidence through the art of drama. Thanks to one of its most popular activities, the filming of a full-length movie every summer, the camp now attracts more and more students with a serious interest in acting, voice and film. This new workshop program was created to help those students, as well as non-campers with similar interests, further develop their craft.
