Introducing the Spotlight Sessions! This unique collection of one-week-long programs allow students to hone in on an area of interest with the world of Theatre and Performance. Students will work with instructors who have mastered their particular focus. All programs will teach students about their chosen field and allow them plenty of hands-on time to explore and experiment. Each Spotlight Session will culminate in a final presentation for family and friends on the Friday afternoon.
We’re casting the Spotlight on…
Puppetry (ages 4-5 and 6-12)
For ages 4-5 see “Playful Players” page for more information.
Experience puppetry like never before! Learn about puppetry techniques from around the world including marionettes, hand puppets, shadow puppets, rod puppets, kathputli, wayang, and bunraku. Design, construct and animate your own puppets. Learn how to “act through a puppet” and create a theatrical performance. Students will expand their creativity and communication skills while working individually and in small groups.
Broadway Bound (ages 6-12)
Spend a week delving into the world of song and dance! Learn classics from the great musicals and some cutting-edge songs from the latest best-sellers. Learn dance techniques that will make your performance pop and refine choreography to present on the final day.
Theatre Production (ages 13-18)
Performance is just as much about what goes on behind the scenes as the action on stage. This workshop-style course will let you dip your toe into costuming, design, set and props, lighting, sound, and stage management. Combine artistic skill with your love of the stage. Open your eyes to a world full of opportunity to create, conceive, and collaborate. This program is perfect for those interested in the fine arts and crafts (including drawing, painting, sculpture, etc.), and will also benefit aspiring actors, giving them a more complete understanding of all the roles within the theatre.
