In 2003, the Mendocino Theatre Company founded the Jumpstart! program as a series of classes and workshops often geared toward young performers. In addition, Jumpstart! has produced a number of fully staged productions, often on the MTC stage. Jumpstart! students have gone on to careers in a variety of disciplines including acting, directing, technical theatre, and film, including Producing Director Felicia Freitas who began at MTC as proud student in Dan Kozloff and Kennedy White’s first ever Jumpstart! Teen Scenes class. Jumpstart! continues to this day in close partnership with the Community Center of Mendocino.
For more information on current Jumpstart! classes and workshops, please contact Producing Director Felicia Freitas at 707-937-2718, or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
