Exciting Young Actors Workshop Begins November 6th

Branson Regional Arts Council presents Young Actors Theatre Movement Classes!

Join us this Fall for a new Theatre Movement Class for Young Actors ages 6-11 and 12-18.

All classes will be held on Mondays in November and December (see schedule), culminating in a fun, Christmas production on Thursday, December 14th at the Historic Owen Theatre in Downtown Branson.

These workshops are led by Justin and Kristen Ables from Forte Theatre Productions.  Justin recently directed Forte’s collaboration production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream with the Branson Regional Arts Council. The talented couple also taught a Young Actors Shakespeare Workshop this past summer in conjunction with that Shakespeare in the Park event. They are excited to jump back into another unique Youth Acting Program with the Arts Council.

‘TIS THE SEASON TO BE ACTING…

The Branson Regional Arts Council is excited to present a new Youth Troupe production of Randy Plummer’s SNOWDEER Christmas Story.  Community area youth ages 8 to 18 are invited to audition for this fun, fantasy filled Holiday Musical.

Most of our Youth Troupe Productions and Workshops require a registration fee to participate, however we will not be charging cast members of this production.  We do ask that all participating families have an active Branson Regional Arts Council Family Membership, available online here for $50/year. This helps support our mission to serve area youth, and provides your family with additional perks and discounts to upcoming events throughout the next year.
