The art of acting and playmaking for children 4-12. Kids will learn basic acting skills as well as what it takes to tell a story on stage. Students will devise a piece of theatre from creating characters, devising a setting, to inventing dramatic twists and stage-worthy endings over the course of the semester. They will be encouraged to dream up using their imagination guided from idea to inception by their teacher. In addition to the playmaking portion of the class, kids will exercise their imagination, develop better focus and gain confidence through targeted acting exercises and improv games. At the end of the course there will be an open rehearsal and a final presentation of the original play devised by the class. 

We have a new class for kids 12-16 who are more serious about their acting skills. The class is called Stage & Screen for Teens. In this class kids will work with various theatre and film/tv scripts to hone their acting technique.
