The HP is pleased to announce that we will now be offering Virtual Acting Lessons! You asked, and we delivered! Frank Garcia Jr. and Joshua Salinas have joined our vocal coaches in helping out Harbor Playhouse. Like our virtual voice lessons, these amazing gentlemen have let us know that all monies from this will 100% go back to the Harbor Playhouse in order to give back to the local theatre that they love!
We will have:
1 class ages 6-8
3 for ages 9-11
3 for ages 12-14
1 for ages 15-18
Class sizes will range to about 6-8 students in each cohort. Space is limited and each student will be entered into either a class or wait list based on a first come first served basis.
Cost for classes is $60 per week for two 30 min lessons. You must pay for 4 weeks in advance so that the curriculum can be consistent and students can work and collaborate together virtually throughout the 4 weeks.
Shortly after you have submitted the form (Link Below) we will notify you as to whether your child made the class list or if they have been put on a wait list.
If you make the class list you must pay for 4 weeks to secure your spot.Once forms are filled out, your teacher will be contacting you via email regarding any other information and a link to pay for your lessons.
Classes are small and space is VERY limited. It is very important that all contact information be correct since this is a virtual class and will be the number one means of communication between student and teacher.
