A large group of the County Prep Theatre Arts students participated this year in the 3rd Annual Theatre Day organized by Hudson County Alliance of Teen Artists in partnership with Hoboken High School on Friday January 19, 2018. The students took part in a full day of theatre activities taught by professionals who are leading the field in theatre education. They each chose two hands-on workshops. Among the choices were: Improvisation with Ryan Huban, founder of NJ based Improv group Howdy Stranger, Playwriting with published playwright George Cameron Grant, Script Analysis with Matthew Lawler, Broadway, TV and film actor, and Audition Techniques Workshop with Douglas Taurel, a professional actor.
This has been an amazing opportunity for our students, who had a chance to work alongside other Hudson County performing arts students and take workshops with theater professionals. They all found the workshops insightful and challenging, and are looking forward to more next year.
