Centenary Stage Company continues their tradition of nurturing young artists by offering the TYRO I and II Acting Program this summer June 29 – July 10.  As part of the CSC’s mission to introduce and develop arts in education with the community, TYRO I and II is a two – week theatre arts program that meets daily and is designed specifically for young thespians ages 6 – 11 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.  TYRO I is specifically designed for students 6 – 8 years of age and meets daily from 9:30am to 12:00pm through the two week session.  TYRO II developed to engage students 9 – 11 years of age meets daily from 1:00pm to 3:30pm during the two week session.  Tuition for the two week program is $200.00 per student and the deadline for registration is June 15, 2015.
