Our Youth Theatre course is designed so that students with little or no theatre experience all the way to experienced young actors can flourish and grow. We foster a nurturing and supportive classroom environment where students are safe to take risks and step outside their comfort zones. Improvisation, audition technique, and beginning scene work are used to introduce students to acting and character development. Because theatre is a collaborative discipline, students will also gain exposure to visual art, music, dance, and technical theatre elements. Students learn to build an ensemble that values play, trust, expressiveness, curiosity, and generosity of spirit. Students learn the building blocks of physical acting: posture, poise, movement, and character building. Through rehearsal and performance of plays and musicals, students explore the framework of storytelling and develop skills to tell stories that are meaningful, connected, and worth telling.
This experience and exposure to storytelling through theatre is designed to foster a life-long appreciation for the arts, and develop life skills that extend beyond the classroom.
