STORYBOOK THEATRE (4-6 yrs):  This 40-minute class gives our youngest Thespians an opportunity to learn about acting in a fun, process-oriented class.  Classes involve lots of theatre games, movement and interaction,  yet do not focus on putting together a finished product (show) at the end of the term.  Classic children's stories are explored each week hrough creative role play, song, movement and art projects. A perfect precursor to our Musical Theatre program (5-7 yrs), and ideal for young learners who may thrive in a less structured environment. 

 

MUSICAL THEATRE (5-7 years):   Popular children's stories are the leaping-off point of our Musical Theatre workshops.  We finish with a fabulous show for our families on the last day.  Classes involve theatre games, story exploration, working off of a custom-written script, simple stage blocking,  learning 2 original songs and simple choreography, and creating fun art projects for our sets each week.
