We proudly present our first-ever Theater Conservatory for Performance! Mercy High School and The Marsh are partnering to provide aspiring and experienced performing artists, who are rising 9th through 12th graders, with the opportunity to develop a strong foundation in the art of performance. Working with drama teacher/director/actress Liz McAninch and writer/playwright Ron Jones in a collaborative and interactive environment, participants will explore acting techniques, script analysis and development; as well as voice and diction to improve vocal projection, articulation and ability to vocally interpret the play; improvisation to develop spontaneity and creativity, and movement to encourage body awareness. Students will also have the chance to work on original or adapted scripts, preparing a text for a fantastic final performance!
