    Art of Acting Studio 1 Week Theatre Intensives for Incarcerated Citizens

    AOA is using theatre to transform lives of some of LA’s most challenged citizens. Through AOA’s Outreach Division we are serving incarcerated women in partnership with Five Keys Charter School and Twin Towers Correctional Facility and men in the Pitchess Juvenile Detention Center. Our incarcerated students receive training in Voice and Speech, Movement and Acting Technique and then develop a body of original theatre to be performed for their peers and their teachers.
