Clubs will be led by STC instructors Ben Siegel and Samuel Huhn.
The Moral of the Story: Medieval Theater
Calling all lords and ladies, knights and peasants! Medieval “morality plays” entertained and educated residents of the Middle Ages, sharing lessons with the population. At this club, we’ll create our own plays with morals and employ some medieval staging concepts that might help us out!
Physicality and the Space on Stage
How can we use our bodies to form characters and tell expressive stories? This month, we will look at everything from 16th-century stock characters to contemporary tools like Laban Movement to discover how our bodies can be tools for creativity and creation!
Behind the Curtain: Lighting Design and Stage Crew Shenanigans
How do color and light change the way we see a story? What does “ensemble” mean when behind the scenes? How do stage crews make magic happen so quickly? This month, we will peek behind the curtain to uncover the secrets of a smooth backstage process, try out hand at some lighting design, and hone our scene shift skills. And get ready: our night will end with the Ultimate Stage Crew Challenge!
Discovering the World: Script Analysis
The facts of our characters and worlds are held in one important document: the script! But how do we approach a script? What can we look for to help us understand a story? How can we shape characters from the words on a page? And how does a script create opportunities for imagination?
