What If?

What if Black Panther was bitten by a vampire? What if Scooby Doo had superpowers? Or what if Batman was scared of the dark? Join us as we create scenes, stories, and characters to explore all kinds of “what if” scenarios, while inventing fun and interesting consequences. How does the world differ by a small change... or a big one?

Become a more well-rounded actor! Try something new or gain more experience doing something you love. Each week we’ll try out a new workshop on a different topic: stage combat, improv, stage makeup, accents, physical comedy, and cold readings.

Jungle Journey

Through the trees, over the winding river, and past the dark caves is a jungle waiting for you explore! Create your own characters and work together to write scenes about exploration. Pick up your binoculars, grab your map, and watch out for booby traps, as we tell stories and scenes of our trek through this strange wilderness.

Audition Lab

Audition Lab is a great way to prepare for upcoming auditions! With the help of a professional teaching artist, students will choose audition monologues that match their age, personality, and individual audition needs. Students will prepare a monologue, develop successful strategies for cold readings, and learn how to create a professional resume. The final class includes a special audition with Jeff Church, Coterie Producing Artistic Director, or a member of The Coterie staff, for youth roles in the upcoming Coterie season.
