Description

Our mission is to provide youth with a safe and nurturing space for a hands-on theater arts experience. After School Drama Class Workshops are designed to encourage creative expression and self-discovery. While fun and entertaining, these classes teach students critically needed life skills. Students expand their ability to communicate through vocal and physical exercises and learn to work effectively with others. As a result, participants enhance their ability to make decisions, resolve conflicts and express themselves in a healthy manner. Students study character and plot then learn performance techniques and prepare their play for viewing.

Students Will

  • Learn basic theater skills and work with professional theater artists.
  • Learn to work together on a play and have the opportunity to perform.
  • On Stage by Lisa Bany-Winters ISBN # 1-55652-324-6
