Private Performance Lessons Performance/Acting lessons are now offered by Timothy Barnes and Allison Chicorel who combined have 40 years of theatre and performance background, training, education and experience. Performance lessons allow our student actors to work one-on-one with our Artistic Directors, for 30 minutes on any performance area the actor would like to improve on. While a private lesson is highly suggested for preparation for an upcoming audition, lessons are also offered year-round to help accelerate all theatrical skills including monologues, staging, character work, even choreography! In order to receive full benefit of a 30 minute lesson, our instructors tailor each individual lesson to the student’s needs and assist in whatever approach fits most comfortably with the student’s learning style. Lessons are $25 for a 30-minute session. Packages of 5 lessons are available to be purchased at a discounted rate of $100.
