Young performers immerse themselves into the world of creative play! As they explore the art of storytelling and stretch their imaginations, students will develop basic understanding of character development, stage movement, and vocal control. Students will work with each other and with props (including puppets) to learn positive social interaction and to gain an introduction to theatre terminology (stage directions, decorum) while they receive important lessons in focus, collaboration, expression, and active listening.

The fall class will culminate in a theme based showcase involving all students for families to attend.

Students will begin to create unique character for themselves, experiment with basic prop building, and explore theatre traditions from other cultures and time periods. They will continue to build important life skills including learning to collaborate, listen and have positive social interaction. Students will also gain a basic introduction to scripted materials.

Time to get in touch with the instrument of the performer … the body. With a focus on how the body expresses feelings (even before any words are spoken), this class teaches performers to use physicalization as a tool to enhance the script. Blending stage movement with the power of the language, students will reach new heights of expression! Students will also work with masks and understand the cultural use of masks in other art forms, gain an introduction to scene work and short monologues, and work towards breaking through their inhibitions and an understanding of the power of communication skills through theatre.

Interpreting a scene is the first step to interpreting the universe! Guided by our professional instructors, these students will begin to master the techniques cherished by performers throughout the centuries. Character analysis, physical comedy, vocal manipulation, and emotional context take center stage as they enter the realm of scene study. Students will continue to work on voice and articulation and discover ways to use and refine their own vocal instrument – by controlling volume, projection and understanding the connection between voice and the body. Students will develop a comfort level for basic public speaking and presentation and will be introduced to the different schools of acting techniques – including Hagen, Meisner, and Stanislovksy.
