For Middle School actors

Lakewood Theatre Company has just added a special session of workshops geared to the Middle grade students starting Monday, Oct 24.

“This is in response to school cutbacks in the greater LO metro area” states Kay Vega, Executive Producer.  “Many school schedules have limited the performaning arts opportunies for students particularly in these grade levels.”  The 6 week Acting 123 workshop is in addition to LTC regular lineup of theatre and art classes. The workshops will be held Monday and Thursdays 4:00-5:30, October 24- December 1 at the Lakewood Center for the Arts, 368 S. State Street in Lake Oswego.

Fee for the 12 classes is $180. Call the theatre at 503-635-3901 to register or click here to download a registration form to mail.

This course includes the building blocks of acting – from improvisation to performing short scenes. It promotes a range of important developmental skills: confidence, leadership, teamwork, and the creative “right brain” thinking recognized as critically important for success. We’ll work on monologues, scenes, auditioning and a short play which will be performed informally at our last class. The class will be taught by Amy Grentencourt, a theatre instructor at Waluga Junior High School, brings a wealth of experience to the LTC training program.

Amy Gretencort graduated cum laude from Cal State with a bachelor’s degree in Visual and Performing Arts, and obtained her Masters of Education from Portland State University. She has worked in theaters from San Francisco to Seattle, both on stage and behind the scenes. Amy has been teaching drama for 12 years and directing the after-school drama program at Waluga Junior for 14 years. In addition to directing, she has written 16 original plays and adapted 2 others. Her original works include The Boxed Circus, Rescue Me!, Dandelion, The Ghosts of Montmartre, and Lost Souls.
