Mason Reeves, who plays Kristoff on the national tour of Disney’s Frozen, will return to Bucks County Playhouse to teach his popular virtual workshop for teenagers. “Acting Foundations and Monologue Preparation for Teens” will be added to the slate of acting and writing classes already announced for spring 2021. It will start Wednesday, April 7 and run through Wednesday, May 12, from 5 to 7 p.m.

“We are so excited to have Mason return to teach this class,” said Murphy. “The teens that took his winter workshop loved it, and we look forward to those students, as well as new students, join in this spring session.”
In this 6-week class for teenage actors of all levels, Reeves will work on the foundations of acting technique to develop the tools needed for young actors to approach any material that is put in front of them. End goals of the class are to have two or three performance-ready monologues; a clear preparation framework for new monologues; an understanding of the vocabulary used in professional rooms and practiced application of those terms; basic historical awareness of the different styles of acting and an understanding of the fundamentals from which you can continue to grow your artistry as an actor.
