Description: ACT2 is our intermediate acting class. We are passionate about nurturing growth in young people through the theater arts! In putting on a play, students learn leadership and communication skills (both verbal and non-verbal), teamwork, and perseverance (seeing a task through to its conclusion). These skills are so important to success in everyday life as well as on stage. Come join us for some fun and hard work in the theater arts! Although there is some uncertainty regarding the Covid-19 pandemic, we plan to perform our full-length play in late April or early May.
Who is this class for? Practice scholars, age 13 and up. At least one year of Shakespeare preferred.
Cost: $ 90
Heather Fahnestock, Lead Mentor
I’m Heather. My husband, Jace, and I grew up in East Africa and met in high school at a boarding school in Kenya. We have been married for 31 years and have two grown children, Grant and Eilee. Both Grant and Eilee were home schooled all the way through high school and were greatly blessed through their participation in iFamily. What a wonderful opportunity we have as home schoolers to create intentional, meaningful community! I have had so much fun over the last eleven years watching youth blossom in our iShakespearelive, ACTivate and ACT2 classes. I am passionate about the role of theater in the development of leadership, character and confidence in young people. Our amazing youth have given me so much more than I have given them, and I am grateful to have the opportunity to mentor them.
