Centenary Stage Company continues their tradition of nurturing young artists by offering the TYRO Acting Program



Centenary Stage Company continues their tradition of nurturing young artists by offering the TYRO Acting Program this spring. The spring session runs February 15 through April 26 and will meet on Wednesdays from 4:30pm to 5:30pm. No class will be held on Wednesday March, 22 2017. As part of the CSC’s mission to introduce and develop arts in education with the community, the TYRO Acting Program is designed specifically for young thespians ages 8 – 10 years of age. Using structured theatre activities which focus on expression, confidence building and fun, young thespians will learn acting games and demonstrate improvisations inspired by popular fairy and folk tales. Tuition for the spring session is $150.00 per student and the deadline for registration is February 1, 2017.

The TYRO Program is led by Maria Brodeur, the CSC Education Director. Brodeur is a professional actress and arts educator with experience in children’s theatre who holds a BA in Theatre and Education from Rutgers University. One TYRO parent recently exclaimed, “I saw so much growth in Christine this summer as a result of the wonderful handling given by all of you.”

TYRO, along with the Young Performers Workshop program, represents the educational arm of the Centenary Stage Company, a professional Equity theatre in residence at Centenary University under the leadership of Artistic Director, Carl Wallnau. For more information regarding the TYRO Acting Program and all other available CSC programming contact (908)979-0900 or visit centenarystageco.org.

The 2016 - 17 season of performing arts events at the Centenary Stage Company is made possible through the generous support of the Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, the NJ State Council on the Arts, the Shubert Foundation, the Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation, the Sandra Kupperman Foundation, and CSC corporate sponsors, including Premier Season Sponsor Heath Village Retirement Community, Silver Sponsors Hackettstown Medical Center, Home Instead Senior Care (Washington), The Holiday Inn of Budd Lake, and Fulton Bank of New Jersey, and Centenary Stage Company members and supporters.
