In the Director’s Chair

This class is all about hands on experience. Students in this class will be the Assistant Directors for our “A
Night of Magical Tales” class. Participants will learn how to set, block, and direct scenes. They will assist in warm ups, run improv games, be active in set design, learn how to get actors to express emotion, and much more. Students will be learning by doing throughout the class with large parts in the production at dress rehearsal and performance, after all, they are the Assistant Directors!

A key part of this class will be table talk learning sessions in the first 30 minutes of class. This will include discussion, review of the previous class including what worked, what didn’t, and what we learned from the class. The next hour of class will be application of these topics.

This class is for anyone who has a love for acting and the arts and is interested in sharpening their own skills. Being in the Assistant Director role will provide the opportunity for application and grow the student’s theater resume. This is a key part of the production, and non-performing role in the end of class production.

The Heart of Drama

During this weekly, one hour theater class, students will learn to use their incredible imaginations and playfulness to develop confidence, mindfulness and creativity while learning drama basics. There will be a new theme each week including topics like character work, blocking, story telling, ensemble building, memorization, and more. From beginning to end, these classes are designed to enhance theater skills, and to help children in real life settings by using the knowledge they gain from acting. Does your child have a hard time making eye contact? Are they shy? Or are they full of energy, emotions, and love the attention? All children are welcomed in the theater and will learn how to apply theater skills to their life! The Heart of Drama is designed to teach the fundamentals of theater, but also to give children a safe place to explore their emotions.

 

Students will learn a monologue or scene to be included in our end of class performance for family and friends.
