General Info
MacGuffin Theatre and Film Company, a Philadelphia-based arts education program, hosts theatre classes and free productions for youth actors between the ages of 3 and 18. History of MacGuffin Theatre and Film Co A MacGuffin is a term that film director Alfred Hitchcock used to describe the secret plans or jewels the spies were after. The MacGuffin is ultimately unimportant. Its purpose is to inspire the chase. It brings the characters together in conflict and drama. The quest for the MacGuffin is perhaps all of our individual and societal journeys, for it's not the end that is important, but rather how we get there. Since 1991 MacGuffin has grown young actors between 3 and 18. With over 60 theater productions, 6 films, 1 documentary and dozens of summer camps under our belts we have taught, encouraged and inspired over 1, 000 young people from many ethnic groups and economic levels. Our alumni have gone on to study acting in many of the leading acting schools in America, including Temple University, Emerson College, New York University, Columbia University and Northwestern University. Several of our students act in regional theaters, on Broadway and recently in Hollywood films ( Spanglish, The Village ) and commercials. Of course many do it for the love of acting and the social bonding that comes with our productions. Our instructors are some of the best actors in the Philadelphia area and their leadership has created a family-like atmosphere where students can feel free to take chances and develop a strong sense of self.
