Studio Mayday is happy to announce a brand new Summer Acting Intensive!
The Acting Intensive Program is specially designed for aspiring actors in high school who are ready to bring the tools and techniques of their training into a professional environment!
SMTC’s Acting Intensive Program will:
• Provide you with comprehensive instruction and candid feedback from industry professionals
• Guide you toward a plan of action with which you can continue to strengthen and deepen your talent
• Equip you with insights and practical tools for possible career paths in theatre, television, and film
Our faculty of professional working teaching-artists will help you to identify your personal artistic strengths as well as give you guidance on areas that need more focus. With these insights, you will develop a plan of action to deepen and strengthen your talent, set an effective career strategy, and take the next step to becoming a professional artist.
All classes are held in the stimulating environment. Classes are kept small, and students benefit from a consistent opportunity to work and challenge themselves daily in class and in rehearsal. A distinguished faculty of working theatre artists provides the highest quality instruction, including individualized career feedback.
Studio Mayday's access to Atlanta's vibrant entertainment industry allows the program to offer special seminars by distinguished guest artists drawn from the area's rich pool of theatre, film and television professionals. The program culminates in a final performance for invited industry professionals, family and friends in Stusio Mayday's New Work Festival.
