WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- The White Plains Performing Arts Center's Conservatory Theatre is expanding its vacation day workshops and acting classes.
In addition to the expansion, WPPAC announced the new “Entergy Master Class Series,” sponsored by the Entergy Corporation, which will expand its current WPPAC Conservatory Theatre training program for aspiring artists. The WPPAC Conservatory Theatre will have classes, full-scale productions and vacation day workshops for young actors between the ages of 10 and 18. The expanded Entergy Master Class Series of theater classes and Vacation Day Workshops promises to offer "a greater range of options for students to focus on specific styles of theatre after school and also while on break from school," representatives said.
