Scene 1 Winter Theater Camp
February 20th -24th 2017
As part of our expanding education initiatives, The New Group was proud to launch our inaugural theater camp for middle school students in New York City, led by Tony-nominated director Sheryl Kaller.
Students trained with actors that are in current and past New Group productions, including Tony and Emmy winner Cynthia Nixon, Josh Hamilton (Hurlyburly, A Lie of the Mind), as well as Golden Globe winner Jill Eikenberry ("L.A. Law") and Michael Tucker ("L.A. Law," Radio Days) from our production Evening at the Talk House, in a daily intensive setting that helped students refine their stage craft, while participating in unique ensemble process that culminated with a final-showing for friends and family, as well as distinguished members of The New Group family.
To join this program, students must be enrolled in 6th, 7th, or 9th grade. There was no prerequisite experience to participate in this camp. Classes include: Acting Technique, Intro to Improvisation, Voice & Movement, and Scene Study.
The New Group is an award-winning, artist-driven company with a commitment to developing and producing powerful, contemporary theater. We have been a home for actors such as Sutton Foster (Sweet Charity, "Younger"), Kunal Nayyar ("The Big Bang Theory"), Peter Dinklage ("Game of Thrones"), Jesse Eisenberg (Batman v Superman), Jena Malone (The Hunger Games), Daphne Rubin-Vega (Rent), and Nat Wolff (Paper Towns).
