(UNION, NJ) — The theater project, an emerging talent incubator and showcase for New Jersey artists, is offering a three-week improv workshop for kids ages 12-17 from July 11-29. The workshop will meet Monday through Friday, 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., with a final free performance for friends and family on Friday, July 28. Sessions will be held at the Boys and Girls Club of Union, 1050 Jeanette Ave, in Union Township, NJ.

The cost of the workshop is $250, but parents can save 20% by registering early (before June 6) in line. Additional information is available on the website or by calling 908-809-8865.

The sessions will be led by artist/director teacher TJ Bodnar, who has worked with students all over New Jersey. “This no-pressure workshop is perfect for young people new to improvisation or those with experience. Our goal is to create a friendly community based on positivity and laughter,” says Bodnar. “But the benefits are enormous. Even companies encourage enhancement training to develop confidence in public speaking and thinking on your feet – the skills we develop here will pay dividends for years to come in any field. Bodnar is the co-founder of Monmouth County Youth Theater, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing performance opportunities for students in the community.

Gaining regional recognition for its ongoing projects during the pandemic – including its annual young playwright competition, the ARK (Actors Reading with Kids) program and its recently launched “The Theater Project Thinks About” podcasts – The Theater Project was no one of 22 New Jersey organizations to receive prestigious NEA grants for 2021.
