Our first class will focus on building ensemble as a group and engaging our imaginations and senses through many different theatre games and skills. 


March 19 – Pirates!
It’s a swashbuckling tale! Practice your “Arghhs” and your “Ahoy Mateys” through song, dance and stories all about Pirates.

Fairies, magic and fun fill the class through the beautiful language and stories of Shakespeare.  Students will learn a bit about the Bard, his many stories, and characters, and even practice some of his poetic language.

April 2 – Costumes! Lights! Stage!

What are costumes? Why do we have lights? What’s a Set Designer? During this class, we will explore a stage and what is on it. Exploring the visual artistry of theatre, each student will also get a chance to design and draw their own costume – and share it.

Students will learn a classic musical number from a Broadway show.
