Centenary Stage Company’s TYRO Acting Program is accepting enrollment for the 2019 summer session running July 8 through July 21.

As part of the Centenary Stage Company’s mission to introduce and develop arts in education within the community, TYRO I for ages 6–8 and TYRO II for ages 9-11 is a two-week theatre arts program designed specifically for young thespians.

Using structured theatre activities which focus on expression, confidence building and fun, young thespians will learn acting technique through a variety of theatre games and improvisations. The two week program culminates with a presentation inspired by fairy tales and folk tales.

Tuition for the two-week program is $225 per student. The program is broken down into two sections TYRO I for ages 6-8 and TYRO II for ages 9-11. The program meets Monday through Friday with TYRO I meeting from 9:30 a.m. to noon and TYRO II meeting from 1-3:30 p.m. The registration deadline is June 21. Interested applicants are encouraged to register early as enrollment is competitive and limited.

The TYRO Acting Program is led by Alycia Kunkle. Kunkle loves sharing her enthusiasm for acting and theatre with students of all ages. She has taught Shakespeare to children in Vermont (Northern Stage), led camps (DeSales University’s Summer Theatre Institute Jr.), taught classes and directed multiple productions (CSC’s Young Performers Workshop), and taught and coached undergraduate students (Ohio University). Kunkle is also a NYC–based actor with a BA in Theatre from DeSales University and an MFA in Acting from Ohio University. The TYRO Acting Program represents the educational arm of the Centenary Stage Company, a professional theatre in residence at Centenary University under the leadership of Artistic Director, Carl Wallnau.
