WEST summer 2013 season

I just signed my son up for all the summer acting that WEST performing arts is offering to teens this summer:

That’s almost 7 weeks of acting (July 4 is a holiday), at 5–7 hours a day, 5–6 days a week (the teen production is longer, but less intense than the two conservatories).  The acting classes will cost $2265 (plus tickets to see the shows), or a bit less than $10/hour for the classes.

All three of the classes are scheduled to be in the West End Studio Theatre, which I’ve not seen since they did some remodeling in the fall (all his productions during the school year have been in the Broadway Playhouse, an older, smaller space). The West End Studio Theatre is much more flexible, as it is basically just warehouse space, and they can set up the stage and audience seating in various configurations—they even did arena seating for Hunger Games last year.

The collaborations with Shakespeare Santa Cruz have been going on for several years, but the one with Theatre Témoin is new.  I think that it will be good for my son to learn the more physical style of acting that they will be teaching, as he tends to focus more on the verbal part of acting than on his physical acting (not exclusively, of course).
