The Marietta Center for the Arts will be offering a six-week long session of acting classes. These classes are a perfect fit for students who are just starting to take an interest in theater, and for those who are looking to practice and expand the skills they may already possess. Classes will focus on utilizing the students’ imaginations and fostering creativity. Students will get to use their voices, minds, and bodies to create realistic characters for the stage, while also playing games and making new friends. New students are always welcome, and returning students are encouraged to come back for more fun, learning, and new activities! Class curriculum will be tailored to the students’ interests and skill levels.
