A note from our youth director, Veronica Gibson
This workshop series will introduce elements of theatrical performance. In a judgment free environment, participants will experience games and exercises that encourage creativity and build ensemble. There will be sub-grouping for different ages, based on enrollment.
This 6 week program will cover improvisation, vocal and physical confidence, theatre etiquette/terminology, and scene work leading up to an informal final showcase.
Each week will have an overarching theme related to "PIE". The series will conclude with a final showcase and reception on the last day of class. Family and friends are welcome to attend.
Week 1 - Ice breakers/ensemble building
Week 2 - "PIE" related warm ups and exercises
Week 3 - "PIE" Improvisations
Week 4 - Scene work from "PIE"
