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 Becoming Annie and Becoming Cinderella is required at least one week before the first session. Open house is held on the last day of the class 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.
Almost every young girl has a magical wish to become Cinderella and now they get to try on that glass slipper! Guided by professional actress and music educator Kandis Wean, students learn the gorgeous song melodies and lyrics of Rogers and Hammerstein’s current Broadway musical, Cinderella. Girls will kick up their feet with dance choreography that brings the enchantment to life as they strive to be a believable princess on stage. Students will perform a short show for parents and guests on the last day of class.
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.

Homeschool Theatre Workshop
Session B: Tuesdays 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.

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.

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.
