FALL CLASSES 2017


preschool

Preschool Theatre is designed for students ages 3-6 and focuses on literacy, expression, movement, and storytelling through creative drama activities. This class begins to introduce students to basic theatrical terms and skills such as stage, performance, audience, actor, narrator, storytelling, body language, facial expression, and vocal tone. This class encourages students but never forces participation—instead we allow the student to observe and decide to join the ‘fun’ when they are ready. This fosters personal decision making and confidence. Although this class is not performance driven, most classes are ready to share an original story at the end of the semester. Each semester focuses on one or two specific theatrical skills, with all elements being introduced over 4 semesters, and ends with an open class for family and friends.

elementary

Elementary Theatre ( After School Theatre Program) is designed for students entering Senior Kindergarten through the fifth grade. This class begins to introduce elements of performance but is still based in creative drama techniques. Other theatre skills that are worked on in Elementary Theatre are projection, diction, blocking, areas of the stage, character development (voice, movement, expression), playwriting, plot analysis, and memorization. Each semester focuses on a type or genre of theatre (improvisation, skit comedy, drama, musical theatre, etc.) and ends with a performance of an original play written by the class in that particular style.
