The Acorn Acting Academy faculty exercises years of experience performing and teaching at reputable institutions that include off-Broadway theater and New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. The team introduces children to on-stage performance with theater games, and expands the skills of adults through an array of classes. Beginner's acting courses teach students to intrepidly bare their creative souls in front of an audience, whereas Performance Intensive classes strengthen advanced thespians so they can deliver monologues, perform short scenes, and carry scripts carved into lead. Acorn Acting Academy also schedules writing classes that focus on themes such as enhancing writer-actor relations and penning soliloquies.
Acorn Acting Academy is run by Acorn Productions, a performing-arts organization that has been going strong for more than a decade. Its artists supply the people of southern Maine with a lens through which to view their emotions and proclivities for using the word "thee" via annual play festivals and theater series such as Naked Shakespeare.
