OOH Acting Studio
Scene Study, Role Playing, Improvisation, & More!...
The Old Opera House Acting Studio (OOHAS) was started in September 2008 and offers small classes that are designed to give students a wide range of acting, performance and theatrical experiences.
Classes are designed to encourage students to have a strong respect for the performing arts and for each other as individual artists. Class work includes scene study, role playing, and improvisation and creative exercises that keep the studio fun and engaging. Our goal is to be sure that each student understands what it means to be a good performer, to utilize their creative tools and to be an actor in today’s competitive theatre world.
