DENHAM SPRINGS -- For children hoping to work on their stage presence or simply get out of their comfort zone, an upcoming acting camp will teach them both.
The Arts Council of Livingston Parish is inviting students in grades 5-12 to a three-day acting camp, which is set to run July 23-25.
The camp will be broken up into two sessions: one for students in grades 5-8 from 10 a.m. until noon, and the other for high schoolers from 5:30-7:30 p.m.
Under Livingston Parish Talented Theatre Teacher Melani Glascock, young actors will learn how to read, select, prepare and perform monologues. Students will work on acting skills, line interpretation, characterization, emotional and facial expression, and body language speech. The camp will conclude with each student performing a monologue for the class.
The cost for the camp is $30 per student, and sessions will be held at the ACLP gallery, located at 133 Hummell Street in downtown Denham Springs.
