Clients from Phoenix House Career Academy and Phoenix House Residential Program in Long Island City are teaming up this summer to participate in weekly evening acting workshops at the Academy with the Outreach Division of the Stella Adler School of Acting. New clients and those who missed out on previous classes last year signed up eagerly, and a total of 25 client actors from both facilities participated in the first session. The group will learn techniques in voice, speech, movement, and acting through exercises and weekly themed activities. Eventually they will collaborate to write plays of their own for a future performance.
