Summer Playshops

ACT NOW Summer MOVIExperience Playshops for Girls (ages 10-14)

Monday-Thursday 9:00– 4:00 and Friday 9:00 to 2:00 followed by family screening of movie at 2:00.

A Week with ACT NOW

  • Each day begins with engaging, community-building improvisation activities.   The “Coaches” (female mentors) guide participants in learning about the basic tenants of improvisation and lots of theatre games.
  • Participants take part in an exercise called location activation that allows story possibilities to emerge from various locations.
  • Girls then co-create their movie, acting in and filming each scene.
  • At the end of the week the finished original movie is screened for family and friends.

Participants should bring a lunch and water bottle each day. ACT NOW will provide healthy snacks.

The girls will be dropped off and picked up from the primary location of each Playshop.  However, girls may be filming at different locations during the week.
