This class is an introduction to Stage Combat and Stunt Work with seasoned Stuntman & Stunt Coordinator Chris Tortora! Students will learn how the professionals on movie sets and in stunt shows at Walt Disney World and Universal Studios throw punches, get hit with breakaway props and perform High Falls. Over the years, many of Chris’s stunt team members have gone on to work in film, at major theme parks in Florida, and around the globe. For those that complete the class, special consideration will be given for next summer’s auditions for the popular Stunt Show out as Silverwood Theme Park.
Chris Tortora began his career in the entertainment industry as a stuntman for numerous stunt shows at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida and was personally hand selected by George Lucas to portray Han Solo for Disney Hollywood Studios.
He has also worked on many television shows like SeaQuest w. Roy Scheider, Mortal Kombat the series and From Earth to the Moon with Tom Hanks and Mark Harmon. Working as a Stuntman, Director and Stunt Coordinator has also allowed him to travel the globe, and in 1999, King Solomon’s Mines, (a stunt show he Stunt Coordinated and Directed), became the #1 Show in Europe.
Locally he is known as Marshal Jack in the train stunt show out at Silverwood Theme Park. In addition to writing, casting, directing, stunt coordinating and creating shows for Silverwood, he has also stunt coordinated shows for Christian Youth Theater and local High schools.
In 2015, he became a published author (under pen name Jack Castle) with Edge Sci-fi and Fantasy Publishing. His novels have been consistently ranked as the Top 100 Bestselling books on Amazon and are available worldwide in e-book and print.
Chris had this to say about his upcoming CYT class, Stunts and Combat…
“I’ve been casting CYT performers for the stunt show out at Silverwood Theme Park for years. I’ve also enjoyed stunt coordinating their shows. I am always impressed by how much the students learn at CYT and I’m even more excited to be a part of their development!”
