Explore Performance

NEW MODEL! (FORMERLY CREATE-A-MUSICAL)

***Please register for the grade your student will be ENTERING in Fall 2018***

 

Explore Performance

Create and perform an original play which integrates a specific style of theatre. Discuss & contribute ideas as you collaborate with your peers on developing the story, setting, characters, dialogue, and staging. Our Teaching Artists help you gain an understanding of theatre as you explore concepts like stylistic choices, ensemble work, story structure, character development, and theatre vocabulary. Perform your original work for family and friends on the final day of class!

Each afternoon, expand your theatre know-how in two workshop-style classes. Delve deep into theatre technique which will help inform and enhance your original play as well as your own performance abilities.

THEATRE LEARNING IN GRADES 4-6 LOOKS LIKE:

  • Integrating performance styles
  • Rich collaboration – discussing & contributing ideas to enhance performance
  • Considering how different physical and vocal choices create unique characters
