This 7 week course for veterans, service members, and their families is led by professional playwrights, actors, and directors and covers basic acting techniques including how to find yourself or your story in the literature of theatre. This course culminates with a graduation show on a professional theatre stage, and prepares actors, directors, and playwrights to further their craft in local professional and community venues.
To be considered as a participant in ASAP and VA Stage's theater program, please fill out this application form to the best of your ability. Due to the high volume of applications that ASAP receives, we are not able to grant admission to all applicants the first time they apply. Please use this application to tell us about yourself and your interest in the course. This is your opportunity to demonstrate why you want to be involved in this program. Learning about your interests, passion, and background will help us put together a class with an array of perspectives and backgrounds.
Finally, please note that we are implementing an ongoing Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) system throughout 2019. In order to participate in the class, all participants must complete a brief pre- and post-class assessment that measures the effects of ASAP's programming on skill-development and well-being. Your participation in our internal monitoring efforts will help us continuously learn from and improve our programs. If you have any questions about our M&E system, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your interest!
