2019 After School workshops

Southern Rep’s After School Workshops are presented in partnership with the New Orleans Jewish Community Center.

About Our Workshops

2019 Registration Currently Closed. Check Out Our 2019 Summer Camps!

We believe that every young person is an artist. Our Spring Theatre Workshops aim to encourage and cultivate the artistry, imagination, and creativity of New Orleans’ young artists. We will be offering workshops for youth aged 4-7 and 8-12. These workshops have been tailored to be creative, exploratory, and process-based. Both workshops culminate in a performance for families, friends, and loved ones, but we want to make sure that we focus on the progress and experience of each child. As always, we accept all performers without an audition and each child will perform at the end of the workshop. These workshops are about discovering how to use our bodies, voices, and imaginations to create theatre and how to work together. And of course, these workshops are all about fun!

Spring 2019 After School Workshops

We believe that every young person is an artist.

And we offer Afterschool Workshops in the fall and spring and Summer Camps aimed to encourage and cultivate the artistry, imagination, and creativity of New Orleans’ young artists.

We have workshops for young people ages 4-7, 8-12, and 13-18. These workshops are open to all levels of experience. All your artist needs is excitement and enthusiasm. In every workshop, we use theatre and performance to give young people a safe space to take risks, learn, be silly, play, collaborate, and create. Workshops are eight weeks long and meet twice a week.

Thanks to our sponsors, Southern Rep is able to offer a limited number of need-based scholarships for all our Workshops and Summer Camps; please email for information. Each workshop has a cap to ensure the highest quality experience for all participants, so please register early to ensure your child’s spot!

WIZARD OF OZ Assistant Director

A Stage Manager, Actress, Director, and Momma who has a love for all things Theater. She received training for the stage at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting in New York and is ecstatic about working with your young artist(s) this Spring. Recently Jamie worked with Southern Rep as SM for EVERYBODY, ASM for MANDATORY MERRIMENT, and will soon return as SM for AZUL. The thing she loves most about working the camp this Spring is the opportunity to combine two of the things she loves most, theater and teaching. We’re going to have a blast! I can’t wait to meet all of you.

Originally from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Jordan Phillips (CLUE Director) is now proud to call New Orleans home. She has worked with Southern Rep as an assistant stage manager (SWEET BIRD OF YOUTH, FATHER COMES HOME FROM THE WARS) and as a teaching artist and director for SRT’s Arts Education programs since 2017. Independently, she is a writer, a director, and a performer. Jordan will graduate from Tulane University with a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre and a Bachelor of Science in Economics in May of 2019.

An aspiring theatre artist who currently attends Loyola University. Having worked as an intern for SRT over the summer as well as being the Hobo on the Polar Express, his passion for working with children has only grown. He hopes to one day direct his own work and to bring the many crazy stories of the world onto the stage for all ages.

This is will be Jaime Jimenez’s (CLUE Assistant Director) fourth show at the JCC. Every show has been different, and he’s am excited to take on this season’s challenge. One thing that he harps on during this process is the idea of “commit”. Whether that’s in character development, memorizing lines, or making a friend. Seeing young actors try their best at any of these jobs is his favorite part of being a teaching artist. This year will be fun. I’m excited to meet everyone who is new and returning!
