LTW's Education Program

We challenge each of our students individually and as an ensemble. There are many skill sets to be learned as an actor and we have created classes that help your children and teens advance to each new level. To achieve this goal, it's important to have each student in the proper grade level to learn and be challenged most effectively. Below you will find our registration listings. Please look closely at the grade levels in the listings below to determine the best fit for your child.

LTW's Education Session Three 2021 Classes Starting Online

We are keeping a close eye on the spread of COVID-19 in our community by following Arizona Department of Health (ADHS) and Pima County Department benchmarks. One key component to coming back together for in-person classes is tracking the level of COVID-19 spread within the community. The ADHS benchmarks track this across three metrics which are updated every Thursday. You can follow these benchmarks by clicking here: https://www.azdhs.gov/preparedness/epidemiology-disease-control/infectious-disease-epidemiology/index.php#novel-coronavirus-schools

Currently, the benchmarks are in the red and it is recommended that remote learning should take place. In the interest in keeping everyone safe at LTW, all camps and classes will be remote. We'll be keeping an eye on them throughout the entire session and if the benchmarks are out of the red for two consecutive weeks, we can then move back into our small in-person outdoor classes.

Over the past 9 months, we have been able to adjust all of our games, activites, and exercises to be taught and learned online. All classes will be held via Zoom and although we can't be in the same physical room as our students, we can still achieve our goals for each class.

What are objectives, beats, and intentions? How do I really become a character on stage? If you are a young actor who is ready to find the answers to these questions, then this is the class for you.

We teach students how to “rip” apart their scripts inside and out, fully commit to a character from beginning to end, and learn the importance of working as an ensemble to create and produce their own show. During this class students will work on a short one act show that will be a live showcase on our outdoor stage! Showcase is the last day of class, March 13 at 12:00pm On showcase day one car per student will be allowed as we have limited parking spots.
