Characters Welcome!

Welcome to the entertaining world of theater arts! Students will be introduced to the basics of theater: acting, theater vocabulary, and how to work together as a fantastic ensemble. This class takes place in a positive atmosphere! Students will have the opportunity to volunteer in fun, and sometimes even outright silly and ridiculous, theater games to learn about voice techniques, physical actions, characterization, stage presence, using their imagination, and much more! The last class will include a performance for family and friends.

Location: Nesbit School, Room 2

Sessions: No Winter session. The plan is to bring it back during Spring 2020.
