Reader’s Theatre with Shannon
Tuesday, 3:30 – 4:30pm, ideal for grades 2nd – 6th.
Students will read, perform, and create simple props for short plays based on popular stories. We will also play fun theater games and learn more about theater and what it takes to put on a play! Students will not be required to memorize lines. This workshop encourages reading fluency, collaboration, and creative problem solving in a fun, engaging way. Stories will be chosen based on class size.
Expression & Speech with Eric
Tuesday, 4:30 – 5:30, ideal for grades 6th – 12th.
How do you transform the words in a script into meaning, emotion, and motivation onstage? In this class, we’ll explore the answers to that question by digging into some texts, using exercises to expand our vocal-expressive range, and bringing the results into action onstage. Whether you’re serious about becoming a more expressive actor or just love playing with language, there’s something for everyone. All experience levels welcome!
Intro to Playback Theatre with Eric
Thursday, 4:30 – 5:30, ideal for grades 6th – 12th.
Playback Theatre is a specialized form of improvisational theatre focused on performing the true stories of audience members. We listen closely to the audience-teller, and then instantly bring their story to life onstage through improvised acting, music, movement, and spoken word. In this class, we’ll explore the basics of Playback Theatre, touching on all the roles from actor to musician to director. Beginning and experienced actors welcome! (Class must have at least 6 registered students to run.)
Creative Dance for Toddlers & Adults – 18 – 36 months with accompanying adult
Thursday & Saturday, 9:30 – 10:15am
This course is designed for toddlers (18-36 mo) and their accompanying adult to spend time dancing, singing and playing with each other and with peers. With sing-along songs, simple dances, and the use of fun and colorful props, children dance to the music and interact with other toddlers. Toddlers move and explore at their own pace and work on basic skills such as following directions, sharing and taking turns. The course is structured and consistent, giving little children lots of time for mastery.
