115 Eastern Ave.
St. Johnsbury, VT

Instructor: William York Hyde

Have you ever noticed that public performers seem to possess more poise and confidence? Well, they do. Utilizing fun improv games, gentle acting exercises and a cross-over model of character development, this 8-week class will help participants to develop new life skills, gain more confidence and higher levels of self-awareness, and reveal or improve their latent acting skills. The final class (hooray!) is an actual staged revue of short plays and fun skits. If you’re a local performer or someone who just wants to gain a bit more confidence, please come play with us.

Class fee: $100 (10% discount for Catamount Arts members and high school students). Scholarship funds are available for high school students; please call Anne at 802-748-2600 ext. 109 for details.

Please refer to our website for any current COVID-19 related restrictions.

Parents of high school students under age 18: Please complete an enrollment form HERE after paying for the workshop.

William York Hyde is a recent transplant to the Northeast Kingdom — Catamount Arts is one of the reasons he chose to retire to St. Johnsbury. William, a SAG-AFTRA member, has performed in movies, TV shows, radio broadcasting, commercials, voice-overs, and more than 130 stage productions, from coast to coast, from the Avant-garde to Shakespeare, from Renaissance Fairs to Broadway. As a collector of short comedic plays, acting exercises and stage games geared to fun self-awareness, William is keen to share his experiences and insights with curious, creative, and adventurous New Englanders.
