Saturday 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM
Instructors: Christine Petrini
This class will not be offered during the spring session, instead we hope all interested performers participate in our Spring Show! Auditions will be held March 10th, see Spring Show tab for more information.
Grades 3 through 6
Creative Acting performers engage in theater games and exercises, discover healthy vocal production for the stage and develop beginning improvisation skills. Students will discover the importance of following direction, teamwork, accepting challenges and taking risks. As performers progress through the classes they develop confidence, individuality and begin to discover the importance of their individual voice.
Fall Session will focus on creating a show through improvisation. Each performer will develop his/her own character as well as help create the plot for the story. The final production empowers students because they see their ideas evolved on stage.
Winter Session will focus on creating a scripted show. Each performer will develop his/her own character while having the restraints of the author’s script. The final production allows students to see how their ideas have influenced the author’s work.
Recital and Performances:
The final 1/2 hour of class, March 9th at 11:30 am, will be a recital of the students work.
Winter classes run for 10 weeks, from January 5th through March 9th.
In the event a class is canceled due to inclement weather the make-up class will be held on March 16th.
