Drew Van Acker (Jason DiLaurentis) is a busy actor, starring in both Pretty Little Liars and Lifetime’s Devious Maids. One never knows where he might pop up on one’s TV screen. But, we know where he’ll be this summer: Newton, Pennsylvania. He’s lending his considerable talents to the Broadway Break Thru Summer Intensive program, a week-long intensive geared toward young people interested in breaking into the theater.
According to the Bucks Local News, Drew will be the celebrity headliner when Broadway Break Thru heads to Newton, which is just outside the city of his birth, Philadelphia. (That’s right. Both Drew and on-screen counterpart Jason DiLaurentis were born in the PA.)
“I’m thrilled to return to my home area, to meet and work with the Broadway Break Thru students,” Drew said of the his upcoming stint in the program. He will be joined by So You Think You Can Dance finalist Ricky Jaime.
In addition to it stop in Newtown, Broadway Break Thru will also bring it elite performing arts program to Chicago, Boston, Orlando, and Grand Rapids this season. Class offered during the week-long intensive include: Acting 101, Acting for Television & Film, Improv, Scene Study, Arts & Technology, Song Selection, Headshots & Resumes, and Film Making.
What will Drew be up to after he’s taken off his mentor hat? Hopefully, heading back to Rosewood to give us the next chapter in the Jason DiLaurentis Story. We’re dying to see his reaction to the news that his sister, Ali, is still alive. (That is, if he doesn’t already know.) We also want to see him step up his half-big brother game for Spencer. She’s been through a lot, and she could use a non-judgmental sibling to confide in.
Catch the Pretty Little Liars Season 5 premiere on Tuesday, June 10, 2014 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC Family.
