The Young Professionals Program
These are programs for students age 7 and up who have previous training and are interested in a more committed, performance orientated experience. We have two different musical theatre programs being offered in our Fall 2019 season, as well as a Teen Company class, and other classes that will be announced at a later date.
JUNIOR MUSICAL THEATRE
This year's junior musical theatre production will dive into the beloved world of the Peanut gang! Classic characters come to life in this wonderful adaptation, and instructor Wren so excited to get started! Each student will learn essential musical theatre skills along the way. DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATION SEPTEMBER 30th, 2019.

SENIOR MUSICAL THEATRE
For the last year and a half, Bonnie Catterson and Wren Beckley have been working with an awesome group of young teens developing an original musical theatre production about a summer camp for “troubled youth”. The writing and developing will be done by the end of summer, and we will be ready to start rehearsals on this amazing production in the fall. This class will be open to new people by invitation or audition only. Please contact Bonnie Catterson for details on how to join this class.
Performance dates: TBA
Age: 11-18 yr olds
September 9th, 2019 - Spring 2020
TEEN COMPANY CLASS - Teens in TV
Kismet Theatre Academy’s Teen Company Class is now taking registrations for Fall 2019. Join instructor Tarah Sullivan for a fun filled examination on Teens in TV. Participants will compare scripts from the 80’s and 90’s to what we see on TV today. Think The Facts of Life vs Pretty little Liars, Degrassi then vs. Degrassi now or Dawson’s Creek vs. Stranger Things.
Through discussion and scene acting we will explore how Teens are represented on TV. Has it changed since the 80’s? Or are the themes universal? What shows hit the mark and what shows have missed it entirely.
A showcase of their favourite scenes will run in December. Class runs until December 17th.
Age: 13-18 yr olds
September 10th, 2019-Dec 2019
Maybe you were the star of your school play and miss the spotlight! Maybe you just want to push yourself out of your comfort zone and meet some new people. Acting is great for confidence building, public speaking, and learning about yourself. Or maybe you are an actor looking to deepen your craft, and gain skills that can take you to the next level in your career. The work that we do is intimate, intensive, and deeply personal. This translates to the kind of storytelling that leaves an audience breathless. Regardless of what you are looking to get out of an acting class....Our motto at Kismet is “Acting is cheaper than therapy!
