Aspiring young actors can learn from some of the most professional teaching artists from the comfort of their own living room during a new virtual program being offered by the Fine & Performing Arts Department of the Johnson County Park and Recreation District.
The program is called the Performing Masterclass Virtual and is for ages 10 to 17. Participants will get to receive coaching and industry tips from New York City- and Los Angeles-based theater artists. The program promises to be a very unique experience and opportunity, and will culminate in an industry showcase.
