Designed for curious artists in grades sixth through tenth, Pizza Party Performance Pop-Ups are one part pizza party, one part scene study and exploration! One Friday or Saturday night a month, students will come together for socializing and pizza, then break into groups to work on scenes assigned to them. Each group will receive one on one feedback and coaching from the teaching artists and at the end of the night, all students will get to perform for each other.

Hear what students are saying about the program: 

“Not only is Pizza Pop-Up fun, it’s also a great place to learn new and innovative ways on how to improve your acting. It’s enjoyable because there’s no pressure as there is with a production. There is room for making mistakes and learn from them. Plus who doesn’t love eating pizza while socializing with friends!”

“This is the most fun experience I have ever done as an actor. It is so fun to get small scripts and rehearse them with amazing actors and perform them the same day. I love all my all my besties!”
