CHILDREN’S THEATRE WORKSHOPS
This Fall we are offering Children’s Theatre Workshops for a variety of ages.
Beginning on Saturday, October 22 and running through November 19, we will run workshops for the following age groups:
“Fun and Games On Stage”
Ages 6-9 will meet from 11:00 am-12:15 pm
This is an introduction to theatre with a focus on making discoveries and interdependence. We use theatre games to welcome our young thespians to the magical world of the stage. They will be challenged to foster creativity and most of all have fun.
“Tools For Success”
Ages 10-12 will meet from 1-2:15pm
This group will work hard to grow their creativity and to strengthen their teamwork as well as build confidence. There will also be an introduction to stage terminology and other roles needed to make any performance a success. Very basic script work will be introduced.
Ages 13-15 will meet from 3-4:15
They will work to refine their skills and gain confidence through their work. Short two person scenes will be a part of our focus and as always support of our fellow actors will be emphasized.
Cost is $50 per child, per session. (Family discounts available). Winter workshop will begin in February. For more information, call our business office between 9:00 am and 1:00 pm, Monday through Friday or email firstname.lastname@example.org
