As part of the CSC’s mission to introduce and develop arts in education with the community, the TYRO Acting Program is designed specifically for young thespians ages 8 – 10 years of age.  Using structured theatre activities which focus on expression, confidence building and fun, young actors will learn acting games focusing on acting technique and demonstrate improvisations inspired by popular fairy and folk tales. 

The TYRO Acting Program is led by Maria Brodeur, the CSC Education Director.  Brodeur is a professional actress and arts educator with experience in children’s theatre who holds a BA in Theatre and Education from Rutgers University.  One TYRO parent recently exclaimed, “I saw so much growth in Christine this summer as a result of the wonderful handling given by all of you.”

TYRO, along with the Young Performers Workshop program, represents the educational arm of the Centenary Stage Company, a professional Equity theatre in residence at Centenary University under the leadership of Artistic Director, Carl Wallnau.  For more information regarding the TYRO Acting Program and all other available CSC programming for the 2017 – 18 season contact (908)979-0900 or visit
