For those of you yearning for the challenge of performing a play while stuck at home, join us for a fully-staged Zoom performance! Since the shelter-in-place orders were mandated in March, many playwrights have created wonderful content specifically for the Zoom platform that allow middle school actors to dive into meaty characters and practice their acting skills! We’re still reading the scripts to choose the right one, but rest assured this play will be funny, poignant, challenging, and give us something creative to work on while we practice acting through a screen. Our class will culminate in a 20-30 minute live play via Zoom on the final day of class in which family and friends are invited to tune in!

About 

Jessica, a Bay Area native, was bitten by the acting bug in middle school after making her stage debut in Shakespeare's 'Romeo & Juliet.' In high school she fell in love with musicals, getting the chance to sing, act and dance in shows like Footloose and How To Succeed in Business Without Really Trying. After graduating from college, she made the scary but exciting decision to move to New York City to attend the two-year conservatory program at The Neighborhood Playhouse. There, she further honed her acting abilities with the Meisner and Alexander techniques. Some favorite roles include Paulette in Legally Blonde, Linda Rotunda in Savage in Limbo, Olivia in Twelfth Night, and Sissy, a crazy bride-to-be in a show called Broken Moments, which premiered at last year's NY International Fringe Festival! She is enjoys working with all the wonderful students of PVTC!
