Footlight Performance Academy

In ‘Acting Out Stories’, instructor Avi Phillips will guide young actors (age 8-12) as they discover and develop worlds, real and imagined, tell stories through movement and creative drama. They will learn to trust and support each other’s ideas as they move into the world of focused theatre-making, developing improvisation skills, and establishing stage presence.

The program takes place on the Capitol Theatre stage and will culminate in a final showcase where actors share their new skills with each other.  ‘Acting Out Stories’ runs June 10, 11, 12, 17, 18, 19. Registration is limited to 10 participants and costs $75+GST.  Call the Capitol Box Office to sign up, 250-352-6363.
