This course is designed for beginning performers currently in 1st through 3rd grade to work on literacy skills and character creation for performance. Emphasis will be placed on identifying key features to a character of the actor’s choosing, learning about storytelling, and working as a team to share ideas and incorporate others’ ideas. In addition to performance rehearsal, class time will feature movement games and activities designed to stand up and move. Class will perform their play on stage at the Broomfield Auditorium on the last Friday of class. Students arrive at 5pm with hair and any makeup done; performances begin at 6:30pm.
Students must make every effort to attend all class dates as absences will impact scene partners and overall end performance. All performances are expected to be off-book (memorized); they will write their own lines with the director to aid in memorization. Students are encouraged to sign up for multiple weeks - each week is a whole new show! Minimum 3, Maximum 10
