Materials Fee:  $5 per student

A course for children ages 8 and up. In this class, we will explore acting and the theatre arts in lots of its many forms. Students will gain experience telling stories through words, movement, and emotion. Specific topics to be explored include improvisation, mask work, acting from a script, mime, and clowning, solo and ensemble performance, auditioning, plus a crash course in theatre and behind-the-scenes terminology--all taught through games and practical application. At the end of the year, we’ll prepare a short scene or skit to share at the Fine Arts Festival. All students will be expected to demonstrate excellent teamwork as we rotate roles and explore each topic together. Minimal outside work required. Through this course, the students will gain increased knowledge of theatre arts, improved confidence, and basic acting/storytelling skills.
