PITTSBURG — Pittsburg Community Theatre will expand its Summer Workshop program. Now in its third year providing affordable acting workshops, PCT is expanding its offering. New this year is the Improv for Actors Workshop (July 11, 18, 25 and Aug. 1 at 6:30 p.m.) for ages 10-18. This four- week workshop teaches the basic principles of improv, story telling, and how improv can help your acting as a whole. Also new is the Musical Theater Dance Workshops designed for children ages 6-12 with a more comprehensive workshop for teens/adults (13 and older). These workshops teach students beginning dance moves that every theater person should know, including jazz, ballet and tap. The class includes instructions for two contrasting routines you can take with you to your next audition. Dance workshops are scheduled on Aug. 20, children in the morning and teens/adults in the afternoon.
