Each week we will learn about a new event or person in history.  From the First Olympics to the Maccabean Revolt.  Pericles, Pyramids, Romans, mummification rituals and more. Lessons will be taught in collaboration with the students and fun facts they bring in each week.  We then bring in a theatrical spin to what we’ve learned and act out these historical figures and moments with improvisation games and character exploration living it on our feet and sometimes rewriting history in the process.  Our students need no previous experience in theatre or history to enjoy this program.  We take all levels.  It should be noted that history does have some mature content and while we will be very sensitive to this, our suggested age range for the class should be taken into consideration.  Please let us know if you have questions, concerns or need to discuss. Homework:  Each week students are asked to bring in five fun facts about each subject assigned.
