Acting for Children

Ages 10-13 - 10:00am - 11:00am, 11:00am - 12:00pm

Stretch your imaginations while practicing acting skills such as projection through theatre games and story dramatization. Students will have fun and laugh, and leave each week with more knowledge and respect for the theatre.

For Ages 6-9 this class will focus on basic theatre skills such as projection, stage direction, choreography, and memorization. These will all be done through interactive theatre games made to engage students and make them comfortable trying new things! This will teach students how to make big choices and increase their confidence on the stage and off.

For Ages 10-13 we will be working on theatre techniques as stated above, but in a more advanced setting. Students will also learn improvisation which helps develop character and relationships through games that challenge the student in various acting styles.

Instructors: Shannon Winpenny
