Fall 2016 Classes
Matilda: A Musical Theatre Workshop
Based on Roald Dahl's classic children's book, Matilda is a story of an imaginative girl who escapes her terrible family life by reading books. With the care and nurturing of her teacher, Miss Honey, Matilda dreams of a brighter life in which she fights injustice and creates a positive future for herself. Students in this class learn the lively songs and dances from the Broadway show and share highlights of the musical on the last day of class.
Reader's Theatre Lab
Acclaimed voiceover artist, actor, director and acting coach Christine Brunner leads this 5 week workshop where your young actor of ANY skill level will excel in transforming words on a page to Performance Art! The group will work together, exploring diction, texture, color, dynamics, pace and even using fun voices to bring short works like poems, song lyrics, famous speeches and other memorable text passages to life, while working as a team using listening, body music, levels, body position, stage presence, gesture and movement! Students will have the option of directing their own short piece, in addition to appearing in a variety of the pieces. All pieces will be presented to family and friends on the final day.
