The Monterey County Theatre Alliance promotes awareness and appreciation of the quality and diversity of local live theatre by acting as a liaison between venues, artists and the public.
 – The ARIEL Theatrical day-time home-school class is open to grades K-12 and takes place every Friday from 10 am-12 pm for six weeks beginning January 11, 2019. There will be a recital for family and friends on Friday, February 15 at 7 pm.
During this session students will explore how building a well-developed character helps tell a more engaging story. In addition, participants will learn that as they practice character-building principles in their lives they will see benefits both on stage and off. Join us to take your acting to the next level!
