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 8 – 14.
Classes and workshops are held in the Caryl D. Philips Creativity Center, 116 North Jefferson Street in downtown Dayton unless otherwise noted.
Open house is held on the last day of the 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.
Save with our Early Bird Registration prices when you register your child at least one week prior to the first day of class.

Fall 2015 Classes
This six-week course is designed to provide both singers and those still finding their voice with the foundation necessary for healthy and proper singing by focusing on the development of vocal technique and healthy vocal habits in addition to boosting individual confidence levels. Students work on fundamentals as a group and then apply concepts during in-class solo performances. Solo work helps students better understand and address their unique vocal challenges. This class is a must for the singer in your home!
A Play a Day
Each Saturday, students read an exciting short script together. After discussing the dramatic elements of the story – characters, plot, dialogue, conflict and theme – they assemble a cast of characters. Students then select appropriate costumes and props from the costume rack and have a dress rehearsal before performing in a staged reading. All in just two hours!
Winter 2016 Classes
Improv – Ultimate Scenework Rivalry
Say, “Yes!” and seize the moment! Perform without advance preparation as a member of the Ultimate Scenework Rivalry Team. Teammates collaborate by building scenes focusing on the WHO, WHAT and WHERE of improvisation. Students develop the improvisation skills of teamwork and examine scene structure then share what they’ve learned on the last week of class.
Newsies! A Musical Theatre Workshop
Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Become a newsboy or newsgirl and imagine yourself on the Broadway stage singing the high-spirited songs from the show Newsies as you toss newspapers into the audience. Rehearse high-stepping choreography to accompany the songs from the show. On the last session of the class, you will perform musical highlights from the show.
