Tween Club Schedule – Fall 2019
September 14th: Lights, Stories, Shadows! (Led by Lena Menefee-Cook and Zoey Lazere)
For centuries, storytellers around the world have used shadow theatre to excite and entertain audiences of all ages. Join us in exploring how we can play with light and shadows to create new characters and environments! We’ll be building shadow puppets and then creating stories around them to bring the puppets to life!
October 12th: A Physical Storyteller’s Toolbelt (Led by Vivan Cook and Allyson Goodman)
Get ready to move and play and discover the power of the actor’s greatest instrument–the body! Join us for a day of clubs filled with physical games, exercises, and character creation. We’ll figure out how we can use our bodies to tell all kinds of stories and become more confident, generous actors in the process!
December 7th: Can You Hear Me Now: Radio Plays (Led by Vivan Cook and Allyson Goodman)
Stories and theater can’t always be seen. Have you ever been completely fascinated by how voices can paint an entire world, or how whole characters can be created (even by only one person)? You won’t want to miss this day of clubs focused on radio plays, where you’ll learn how to create sound effects, turn stories into soundscapes, and utilize your voice to portray all kinds of different characters. By the end of the club, you’ll be working together to create your very own radio play!
