Master of Arts (MA)
A student gifted in the theater arts does not find it easy to be "an actor." Talent is a small part of the many factors necessary to go on the stage. The student needs a great deal of self-confidence and poise to go through lengthy and frequent auditions. No matter what age the student is, it is necessary to have vocal projection for great distances, clear diction, and the ability to show a spectrum of emotions. After going through the audition process, the chosen child needs an excellent memory, not only for his/her own part, but for his/her location on stage and within the script.
