Classes in Acting and Movement

After-School Theater Classes for Grades 1-6

6 Thursday Evenings; Feb 9- March 16, 2017

DREAM A PLAY- 4:30-6:00

Students grades 1-3 will use their imaginations to create an original world, and characters. This course will celebrate the collective human imagination, and our ability to explore the universe through stories.

CREATING CHARACTERS – 6:30- 8:00

Students grades 4-6 will learn the basics of embodying a character in a play. A playwright?s script is set. A director?s vision is clear and firm. And within those parameters, an actor has limitless possibilities for creating a character that is uniquely their own.

Both courses will culminate in a performance for friends and family.
