New in-person and online classes begin next week at The Naples Players
January 5, 2021
January 5, 2021 – Naples, Fla. The Naples Players (TNP) kick off a new seasonal session of theatre and improv classes for children, teens, and adults starting January 11th. Classes vary between six to eight weeks in length and are offered in a mix of online and on-site classes.
New this season is “Playing to the Camera” an interactive class for ages 9-18 that focuses on using a camera and editing software as well as the basics of acting for the camera. The class encourages students to create and critique their own content in preparation for future opportunities to submit audition tapes.
“We’re ahead of the curve when it comes to teaching the next generation of artists how to effectively act, film, and edit their own creative content and we’re excited to offer such innovative new classes,” said Bryce Alexander, CEO and Executive Artistic Director TNP.
A large variety of traditional acting and improvisation classes are also available for both adults and children this season. Improv classes are available both on-site and online and provide both skills-based and therapeutic benefits for those looking to connect with others and have fun doing it. Classes meet for 90-minutes once each week starting in mid-January.
Additional wellness-based classes, acting workshops led by local professionals Diane Davis and Jessica Walck, and age-based introductory and intermediate classes for children and teens also start in the coming weeks. Registration is required and need-based scholarships are available.
The Naples Players have also joined a national initiative through the Black Improv Alliance to increase the number of people of color in improv classes during 2021. Scholarships and more information are available by contacting the TNP Education Department at (239) 434-7340, Ext. 127.
