Neighborhood Acting Classes


South Coast Repertory's free afterschool drama classes make the magic of theatre accessible to under-served children. These weekly classes are dedicated to promoting self-confidence, self-expression and creativity while developing basic theatre skills. Professional teachers from SCR's Theatre Conservatory travel to locations in Orange County where a need has been identified to conduct classes at no cost to the students, host facility or program.

By the end of the 7-to-10 week session, Neighborhood Conservatory students will be able to:

  • Move freely in front of other students
  • Speak with poise in front of peers
  • Re-create action through pantomime
  • Develop a character through exploration of voice and body
  • Begin to share stories in a dramatized form

If you are interested in hosting a Neighborhood Conservatory ​class or would like more information, contact Conservatory and Educational Programs Director Hisa Takakuwa at (714) 708-5509 or hisa@scr.org.
