Surrey Arts Centre is offering acting classes for children and youth, starting Jan. 22.

Fresh from a lead role in Gateway Theatre’s production of Sylvia, professional actor, instructor and audition coach Lisa Bunting returns to the centre to teach two classes; Preteen Acting Extreme and Much Ado About Acting.

Children aged eight to 12 will experience all aspects of bringing a play to life, from first readings to final performance in Preteen Acting Extreme, which will run for eight weeks beginning Jan. 22, 4:30-6 p.m.

Cost is $135 per student.

Much Ado About Acting is for teens aged 12 to 16 who love acting but want to take their skills to the next level.

The eight-week course includes theatre games and exercises, cold reads, monologues, and scene study. Under Bunting’s guidance, students will rehearse scenes and create compositions that will be showcased in a final performance for family and friends.

The course begins Jan. 22, 7-9 p.m. and costs $175 per student.

Advance registration is necessary for both courses, as minimum class size must be reached one week prior to the start date.

Registration can be done online at www.surrey.ca/register or by phone at 604-501-5100.
