Acting Track

  • Receive a call before your 2-Day Intensive to choose an acting scene or monologue

  • Write your first short script with Writer/Director of Up State Studios, Lisa Baron

  • Shoot your short script, learning how to use the camera, how to Direct and what is important in the rules of filmmaking

What is the big difference between the two tracks?

Both tracks will be able to workshop their pieces with Off-Broadway performers, receive a recording of their pieces, and learn screenwriting/camera basics. Musical Theatre/Vocal students will receive more vocal technique training while Acting students will get to shoot their written script.

Can Friends/Family sit in on the 2-day intensives?

Unfortunately, the workshop sessions will be closed to those outside the 2-day intensive, but we will have a live-performance for friends and family to watch!

Who will be running the 2-day intensives?

Lisa Baron, owner of Up State Studios (CNY/NYC) will be the primary contact for the event. The event will also be run by CVA Music Director, Mark Bunce, and NYC performers, Gabriella Garcia & Stephen Velasquez.
