Starting Sept. 15, Mr. Holiday's School of High Drama and Over Acting will be presenting Acting for Life at the Sidney & Berne Davis Arts Center in downtown Fort Myers. Class is for ages 8 to 13 and will be for eight Thursdays from 6:30 to 8 p.m.

"Ever since Cheers and Seinfeld went off the air, Thursdays have been a great night for a fun, interactive and rewarding experience for children," says Shawn Holiday, who has been directing children's plays and teaching since 1998. "I found a great new location for my Thursday class this fall and I'm excited about bringing more educational programs downtown. We had a great camp at the Davis Arts Center this summer and it's a terrific place for anyone to find their own voice."

Acting for Life will be held on Thursdays at the historic Sidney & Berne Davis Arts Center, 2301 First Street in downtown Fort Myers. Class is for any youth ages 8 to 13 and begins Sept. 15. Diction, poise, teamwork, communication, creativity, problem solving, personal expression and responsibility are some of the valuable skills emphasized in this program. Cost is $110.

Shawn Holiday has taught youth classes and workshops for many organizations, including Southwest Florida Chamber of Commerce, BIG Arts, Canterbury School, United Arts Council of Collier County, Sunshine Elementary, Edison/Ford Winter Estates, First United Methodist Church, Florida Dept. of Juvenile Justice, Lee County Library System, and Lee County Parks and Recreation.
