ADVENTURES IN THEATRE
Classes and Workshops for Kids and Teens
The world's a stage for your child, and The Human Race is here to help them play their part. There's fun to be had for kids and teens ages 5 – 19.
Classes and workshops are held in the Caryl D. Philips Creativity Center, 116 North Jefferson Street in downtown Dayton unless otherwise noted.
Registration for Story Mural Magic, Let's Do a Show! and Becoming Annie! is required at least one week before the first session. Open house is held on the last day of these classes so that family and friends can share in what the students have been learning. Partial scholarships are available for qualifying families who are in need, thanks to the generous support of the Frank M. Tait Foundation. Download the scholarship application.
Story Mural Magic
Enjoy hearing story favorites and step inside each story to explore the lively characters through creative drama activities which develop your movement skills and vocal expression. Using all of your senses, recreate the stories by creating a colorful mural on the wall to illustrate the setting, the characters and the mood. Parents are invited to come to the last class of the session.
Let's Do a Show!
From the page to the stage! Read through the hilarious new script The Frog Prince and marvel at the colorful animal and human characters. Participate in auditions, rehearse many times, add costumes and props, sharpen your performance techniques and perform the play on the last day of the session.
Please note: In this version of The Frog Prince, there is absolutely no kissing, but there is a golden ball, a magical panther, a birthday celebration and a wishing well!
After School Tuesdays at The Creativity Center
Drop by on Tuesday afternoons between 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. and you will be transported into the imaginative world of theatre. Each week will be designed to introduce a new skill or theatrical area. Develop your skills in improvisation, explore stage makeup technique, write a dramatic script, choreograph a new dance, act out your favorite myth or tall tale. Learn monologues, rehearse scenework and participate in mock auditions. And best of all, make new friends!
Healthy afternoon snacks will be provided.
To make your pre-registration RSVP, call Education Director Marilyn Klaben at (937) 461-3823, ext. 3132 or email her at email@example.com. Please be sure to note any food allergies your child may have.
Homeschool Theatre Workshop
Session B: Tuesdays 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.
Fee: $55.00 per student
Bring your homeschool group downtown to our inspiring Creativity Center and the students will be introduced to the Actor’s Toolbox of Skills. They will select scenes from exciting scripts, learn how to develop character roles, and perform together as they learn more about the world of theatre.
Alternative workshop dates and times are available by request. Teaching artists can also come to your homeschool site, and scheduling can be arranged according to the needs of your group.

Come join Human Race Resident Artist Katie Pees on a month-long adventure in musical theatre. Becoming Annie will take your daughter on a theatrical journey through vocal coachings, dance techniques and character development. Your child will be ready to sing her favorite songs and dance like a Broadway star to “It’s a Hard Knock Life”, “Tomorrow” and “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile.” There will be a sharing session on the last day of class.
