Those of you who have taken classes or who have children in our ACT program will know that the name has bounced back and forth over the years. After a long discussion with our board over which name is the most effective for our children/youth training academy, we’ve decided to let the kids decide. They, after all, are the ones who would know best what name speaks to the younger generation and would peak the interest of other young performers.
Therefore, we are hosting an “ACT NEW NAME CONTEST”.
Until Feb. 15th, we will be accepting suggestions for a new name for our ACT program. From all the entries received, we will choose the top 3-5 and post them on our blog for a vote. We will choose a winner based on the 3 most popular names.
Here are a few things to take into consideration before you send us your suggestion:
1. In order to make it easier on our grant writing process, it helps to make it clear that we are a children/youth oriented program.
2. Our classes focus on craft, as well as having fun. We would like to evolve into a pre-professional training program for kids who want to study theatre in college. Because of this, we consider our training program to be an academy of sorts.
3. It would be help to find a name with an acronym that works, too.
So, with that in mind, start brainstorming and email your ideas to [email protected].
The authors of the top 3 suggestions will receive one free space in one of our upcoming master classes! We will be offering master classes in the areas of audition techniques, movement and the business of theatre, so keep an eye on our website for more information.
