Camps & Classes

DiscoveryOnstage provides year-round classes for young people of all ages and experience levels to explore various disciplines within the arts. Unlike the programs and curriculum the company offers in residence, DiscoveryOnstage hones in on specialized, specific areas of performance and artistic expression, all promoting and celebrating originality and entertaining the unimaginable.

DiscoveryOnstage currently offers three unique programs: The annual Summer Acting Camp, the Pilot Project, and the Young Actors’ Exploration Series.

Young Actor’s Lab

DiscoveryOnstage, in residency at Providence High Arts, presents the Young Actor’s Lab! Join us for this exciting and inspiring thirteen week journey that engages the mind, body, and soul in the process of creating character From the Imagination Up. Led by master instructor Jeremy Kent Jackson, star of Disney XD’s Lab Rats, students will explore the fundamentals of acting and improvisation, then conceive, develop, and perform in their own original scenes.

The Pilot Project

A bi-yearly endeavor, DiscoveryOnstage allows for young people between the ages of 14 and 19 to participate in the process of developing an actual, viable television pilot from inception to final product. The young collaborators write, perform, and pitch their own original pilots with the hopes of launching a television series celebrating the power of the creative spirit and the impact of process participation.

Returning in 2019!

Through the Lens
DiscoveryOnstage’s Professional Level Acting Studio

Through the Lens Acting for the Camera Classes provide weekly opportunity for serious actors, YOUTH and ADULT, to cultivate the physical, vocal, and emotional skills necessary for success in the film and television industry. Within each class, students will explore technique, analyze script, perfect rehearsal process and prepare to shoot. Every 8 to 12 weeks, students will perform scenes on-camera to be edited by the Through the Lens post-production team and then presented in class for feedback the following week. Along the way, students will develop a unique and effective approach to the work that serves them both inside the audition room and on-set.
