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 - Spring
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. Each student commits to being an integral part of the process and final performance. As with any team, each student’s presence and participation are important—so please consider your schedule when registering.

Spring R&P By Audition
A Wrinkle in Time
By Morgan Gould. Adapted from the book by Madeleine L’Engle.
One of literature’s most enduring young heroines, Meg Murry, is back – braces, stubbornness, and all! Once again, she’s joining forces with Mrs. Whatsit, Charles Wallace, Calvin O’Keefe, and more to battle the forces of evil so she can rescue her father, save humanity, and find herself. In the end, we know two things for sure: 1) Love CAN overcome evil and 2) There IS such a thing as a tesseract.
