A Hands-On Introduction to Acting

Grades 3-5 | 5 synchronous learning sessions of 60 minutes each | Up to 20 students | $600

One of the coolest things about theatre is that you can learn a lot by playing educational games! In each session of this highly-interactive program, we’ll spotlight a different acting skill, from pantomime (acting without words) to developing a character. Students will be guided through hands-on practice with every skill as they participate in the Spotlight program. To maximize student engagement, Spotlight is delivered as synchronous instruction.*

Add an Enrichment Activity

Each session can include an optional enrichment activity. We’ll challenge your students at the end of the session to record themselves acting out a very short dramatic scene. With parental permission, students can submit videos of their work to Drama by George. We’ll edit them together to create a showcase that allows your students to watch each other perform, even when they can’t be together in the same room. Add $300 to the program price to cover the costs of compiling and editing the student showcase.

Our program helps students build creativity and self-confidence while they learn the basics of acting. Let us put your kids in the Spotlight!


*Some segments of the program are pre-recorded — that allows us to include titling and other helpful elements in the videos. However, there will be a live teacher leading each session, guiding and challenging your students.
