Santa Clarita School of Performing Arts to host showcase

The Santa Clarita School of Performing Arts is inviting residents to join them for its first-ever Showcase on Tuesday evening.

The school, which offers classes to anyone 3 years old to adult in modeling, singing, voiceovers and improv, as well as acting, decided to open its professional scene study and improv class to the public.

“At the end of the semester, we usually tape their scenes, but I thought, let’s do a live showcase so friends, family and the public can see what we’re doing at the school while giving the actors a chance to perform in front of an audience and have a great time,” said teacher Marina Anderson. “It’s the first time we’ve had one at this school.”

The professional scene study class, made up of the school’s advanced actors and taught by Anderson, is set to perform various scenes, followed by a performance by teacher David Smalley’s improv class.

“These actors are so talented,” Anderson said. “It’s very exciting to see new, emerging talent get that opportunity to be seen.”

If you’re interested in learning more about the school, they hold two free open houses weekly on Wednesdays and Sundays.

The Showcase, which is free to attend, is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, June 11, at the Santa Clarita School of Performing Arts’ main building located at 23502 Lyons Ave No. 105 in Valencia. Doors open at 7:15 p.m. and the show will begin at 7:30 p.m.
