Welcome back Westys!

WEST is returning to in-person classes this summer. Summer Acting Camps are nearly finalized. We expect the full camps to be posted this week and registration to start once posted. Our focus will be on crafting small cohort, in-person classes this summer that cultivate creative solutions to experience acting and playmaking while following pandemic safety guidelines. We will be taking a break from online class platforms and offer in-person only.

What to expect:

  1. Community-building, creativity, and a ridiculous amount of fun and laughter at the core of each class.
  2. Classes will be totally processed-based with no public performances
  3. Class sizes will be limited in size (sorry, no exceptions) and will follow all CDC and State guidelines.
  4. Outdoor spaces will be prioritized for classes and we will use all available rooms at the Santa Cruz Art League.
  5. Mixed-age group classes of Grades 2-5 & 5-8 (*5th grade please enroll where most successful).
  6. Week-long (M-F) themed acting camps (acting games and technique classes, improv, sketch comedy, playmaking & design/building). HIgh school programs will offer weekend conservatories, week-long and weekly series class options.
