Ever wanted to try your hand at acting? I have, but I’ve always had a million excuses: Who offers acting classes in Shreveport-Bossier? Can I afford to take a class? One of this year’s Be a Fan of Shreveport-Bossier special offers is a free, two-hour introductory acting class with veteran actress and director Mary Joris. The class will be held, 1-3 p.m., Saturday, May 12 at Shreveport Little Theatre. Get more details on the offer here or just call Shreveport Little Theatre at (318) 424-4439 to register. There are 31 special offers for Be a Fan of Shreveport-Bossier 2018, and they range from 25% off admission to Splash Kingdom Water Park to 20% off pizza from Flying Heart Brewing & Pub.
Any free acting class would be pretty cool, but this opportunity is made even more appealing due to the fact that Shreveport Little Theatre, founded in 1922, is one of America’s oldest continually operated community theatres. Also, there’s the sure hand of class instructor Mary Joris, an easy-going yet focused instructor who emphasizes that this class is for anyone and everyone – whether you’ve ever acted or not. A little experience acting, she says, can help one develop confidence and communication skills.
Be a Fan of Shreveport-Bossier – which is a month-long promotion organized by the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau – also has two great giveaways going. The first giveaway, which you can enter here, will award one winner with ticket packages from Shreveport Aquarium and Splash Kingdom Water Park along with dining and hotel accommodations. The second giveaway, which you can learn about here, requires that you visit at least four participating attractions during May. One entrant in the second giveaway will win an overnight stay and buffet passes from Margaritaville Resort Casino as well as a gift certificate from Louisiana Boardwalk Outlets.
