Online Group Acting Classes for Ages 8 to 18, w/ Jillian O’Neil

Summer online group classes are here! These sessions will be held over Zoom with a maximum of 6 students per group. Attendees will have the chance to work with other students using real TV, film, and commercial scripts. The group setting allows the kids to get comfortable working spontaneously with new material, develop improvisational skills, and learn to constructively critique their own performances, as well those of other students.

We will work on new material in every class.

If you have questions, email Jillian O’Neil at [email protected].
