Fall Improv Aug 29-Oct 10, 2022 (no class Sept 5); $125 ($140 charter) per student.
Improvisation is an enjoyable and safe environment for an individual to experience self-growth. Plus it is SUPER FUN! Through interactive activities and exercise, our students get the chance to experience growth on a physical, emotional and physical level. This program teaches acting techniques AND improves confidence, has social benefits and promotes communication skills. Commedia dell’arte is an Italian style of theatre that was popular in Europe in the 16th century and most of the comedy and stock characters we see today originated from this art form.
Shakespeare Performance Program Oct 17-March 27, 2023 (See schedule/pricing notes below)
Join us for a fun and exciting program of rehearsing and performing an edit of one of Shakespeare’s most popular plays. Our script is edited from the original text keeping the Elizabethan English. Through physical and theatrical exercises, students will learn how to create and develop a character, understand Shakespeare and use their voices and bodies to tell this great story. We’ll bring it all together as we prepare for live performance with elizabethan song, dance and stage combat! This class is a safe and supportive atmosphere where students are encouraged to make bold acting choices while learning teamwork and gaining confidence. All students will get a speaking role involving lines that will need to be memorized on schedule. Roles range in size (small, medium and large) and will be cast in consideration of class size, production needs and student preference.
