Regarding Actors Junior is a program designed specifically for young actors ages 7-9, who have a great enthusiasm for musical theatre but are not yet old enough to attend our full summer workshop experience.  Our junior actors will study voice, acting, and dance in a small class setting where they will develop their fundamental performance skills.  Classes will include acting exercises and games, learning the art of the commercial audition, vocal technique, solo singing, and working with a professional choreographer. The instructors for this program specialize in working with young children and every class will be an energetic and positive environment where the students can make friends while learning new performance skills.  Regarding Actors Junior is also a fantastic opportunity for students to get introduced to Regarding Actors  and prepare themselves for our more advanced workshops and intensives. Regarding Actors Junior students will have an opportunity to audition for Chicago’s top Talent and Casting agents.   All of our RA Junior Actors will have their performance “moment”  in our showcase on the Drury Lane Stage. 

Also Available:

  • Headshot photo session with professional photographer, Brett Beiner
  • Daily meal package

Participants in this career building workshop will have the opportunity to work with two of the top and most respected coaches in the business. Actors will walk away with the confidence and tools needed to continue or start a career path in the performing arts.
