Skills Classes

In the Skills Classes, the students focus on particular aspects of performance and/or production under their teachers' guidance. The students' ideas inspire the final showcase--from selecting material to creating stories, props and costumes.

Core Acting - Fall

We are looking for: good team players, movie fans, avid readers, sports fans, brainiacs, shy kids, pirates, princesses and born performers – anyone and everyone who has ever imagined their own adventure!

What you will need: your body, your voice, and your imagination!

These classes draw on students’ strengths and abilities for every aspect of the final production. Students will focus on bringing characters to life through creative movement, improvisation and text. They will explore dramatic structure as they write their own play to perform for families and friends on the last day of class. They will also create most costumes, props or set pieces they might need.

Winter R&P By Audition

The Jungle Book
By Monica Flory. Based on the stories by Rudyard Kipling.

In this action-packed adaptation of the classic adventure story, precocious Mowgli grows up believing he's as fierce a wolf as any of the members of his pack. When he learns he is actually a human, he must discover how to reconcile these very different identities, and decide whether to remain with the pack, or return to the human world from which he was born. What will he choose? And will he be trained in the Law of the Jungle in time to defeat Shere Khan, the most feared animal of all?

Spring R&P By Audition

The Seussification of A Midsummer Night’s Dream
By Peter Bloedel.

The Bard's most beloved comedy gets the full Seuss treatment in this playful adaptation. Two madcap Narrators chronicle the tale of the mixed-up lovers as they wander through a forest full of whoosh bush tush beasts and fairies dueling with bumballoon swords. Told in rhyming couplets, this reimagining is how Shakespeare's magical tale might have played if Dr. Seuss had gotten his hands on it!
