Teen Club Schedule – Summer 2019
June 11 (Tuesday): Summer Kickoff!
A night of Teen & Tween Club theater fun to start your summer off right.
June 20: Room For Improv-ment
Performing a scene without any given lines can be nerve wracking – but not if you have the right tools for the job! In this club, we’ll take a dive into the improv toolbox to explore the use of comic timing, effective communication, and teamwork in a hilarity-filled night that will equip actors with all the essentials needed for a confident improv stage presence.
June 27: Scenic Painting
Scenic design is a creative and magical way to help bring stage productions to life. In this club, we’ll tackle the different painting tricks and techniques used to drastically transform the stage into the world of your play. WEAR CLOTHES YOU CAN GET PAINT ON.
July 11: Listen & Create: Ensemble Building
Together with your fellow actors, you have the power to create entire worlds! Through games and exercises, we’ll learn the true meaning of the word ‘ensemble’ and how to listen and work effectively as a team. By the end of the night, we’ll use our skills to make some truly wonderful creations!
This club will be held at 2400 Oakwood Road.
July 18: The Power of Staging
How do strong stage pictures affect the power of your story? How can you decide which picture is the strongest? And what changes if you move your play to a different type of stage? We’ll tackle these questions and play with staging techniques in this possibility-packed club.
July 25: Character Club
Ever noticed how many different types of characters there are in some stories? It’d be pretty boring if they all lived exactly the same lives, with exactly the same personalities. But who has the authority in telling the story? How can you tell? This club will explore some characterization techniques you might not have thought about before.
Aug. 1: Playwriting
Have you ever wanted to write a story like the ones you’ve seen on stage? Then look no further than this playwriting club! In this club, we’ll experiment with how to develop characters, create dialogue, and structure your play. By the time we’re finished, you’ll be one step closer to putting a new story on the stage.
Aug. 8: The Magic of Mime
An actor’s voice can be one of their most powerful tools. So what happens when you take it away? This night is all about how to use your body, your surroundings, musical soundtracks, and basically anything that isn’t your voice in order to create comedy, drama, and action in short scenes!
