Summer | July – August, 2023
In this class for Adults and Seniors, students will have the opportunity to get a taste of multiple aspects of theatre arts by enjoying one class each in a number of subjects. We’ll start by covering Basic Stage Skills where you’ll learn the language of theater and then move into week after week of introductory workshops on a variety of theatre arts subjects, much like a tasting menu. Featured subjects may include Acting Basics, Singing Basics, Tap Basics, Broadway Dance, Improvisation, Makeup Design, Costume Design, Lighting Design, Page To Stage (scene study), and more. The goal is to help students discover untapped interests in any of the many fields of theatre arts before.
No experience necessary: this is an opportunity for interested adults and seniors to explore their creative talents as well as meet other people in a fun framework to explore the rich diversity and talents of the local community.
