Fall Class Sessions begin August 7, 2017

Young at Heartland’s fall senior acting workshop will begin at 4 PM on Monday, August 7, 2017. Class sessions will meet every Monday, except September 4, through October 2. Sessions are dedicated to the study of the craft of acting, culminating in performances at senior activity centers in the area.
