River City Repertory begins instruction for youths with faculty of May, Jackson and Sledge; classes begin Sept 16
At RCRT YOUTH! students will get a chance to work with trained, professional acting teachers, inspiring guest artists and industry professionals each semester. An insight into the structure of having a professional career as an Equity actor will serve as a basis for instruction.
RCRT YOUTH!’s first season will culminate with an evening of scenes and performances by its students. Future plans call for productions that will focus on theatre FOR children rather than theatre BY children.
Acting classes, which begin September 16th, will be held at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church Fellowship Hall, 275 Southfield Road in Shreveport. Vocal classes will be held at the River City Repertory Theatre offices at 2829 Youree Drive, Suite 4, in Shreveport. The term ends November 22nd.
Logan Sledge, a member of Actors’ Equity, will instruct 18 to 14 year olds. Trey Jackson, who is a veteran of local theatre, will teach 13 to 8 year olds. Seva May, one of the area’s most popular musical actresses, will provide vocal and musical performance instruction to all age groups. Sledge will also offer personal acting instruction to individuals by appointment.
