Contact Sam to join the fun!
Up and Coming is designed for actors new to Detour or those actors who are a part of Detour but do not or are not capable of participation in the production classes.
We have found there is a tremendous need for a program that uses the "team approach" of drama but does not have the pressure and/or "chaos" of a typical production class. Many individuals just want to participate in theatre and drama games for the intrinsic benefits of doing play-making together. These benefits are many - speech, vocal fluency and articulation, literacy (from reading lines), movement expression (with and without music) and all the rewards from working as part of a group in a noncompetitive setting.
Weekly classes follow a pedagogy of theatre activities from beginning movement, focus, group games to more intricate (but adapted) choreography, scene work and improvisation.
