SPRING 2022 DATES & TOPICS
Creating Life: Actors and Puppets
For centuries, performers have animated the inanimate to tell stories. This month, we will try creating some puppets of our own and explore the most powerful ways to bring puppets to life.
Acting Without Words
An actor’s voice can be a powerful tool. So what happens when we take it away? This month, we will look at mime and how to use our bodies, our surroundings, musical soundtracks, and basically anything other than our voices to create comedy, drama, and action.
Monologues and Cold Reads and Slates, Oh My!
Oh, that thrilling and nerve-wracking experience we call the audition! This month, we will look at auditions in their various forms and practice some tips and techniques in a fun, no-pressure environment.
The Beginnings of Theater: Storytelling in Ancient Greece
Let’s journey back to the 6th century BC and look at theater in its earliest forms! With the help of masks and a Greek chorus of our own, we will have a blast exploring the tragedies, comedies, and satyr plays where theatre found its beginning.
Theater Out of a Hat
You draw a character, a prop, a setting, a genre, and a line out of the hat, and you know that a day of fun, creativity, and excitement is ahead of you. Can you create a script from scratch and bring it to the stage—complete with the aspects of design— in just one afternoon? Join us this month to find out!
