Wednesdays, from 4:30-6:30pm at The Wychwood Theatre at Wychwood Barns.
In a beautiful professional theatre space, kids work together to create a full-scale production of a well-known musical, complete with lights, sets, and costumes. The program runs all year long in three sessions, each with a specific focus:
FALL: We use improv /theatre games, body awareness/movement, voice technique and scene study, to help students dive deep into the characters, the storytelling, and the score. Kids learn to be a good acting partners, to break down text to find meaning, to inhabit different characters, and how to find their physical power and authentic voice.
WINTER: Students use the skills they’ve built to audition for the parts they’re interested in. In December, the show is cast! Kids get their parts and scripts, and have 3 weeks over the winter break to learn their lines. Then in January, rehearsals begin! Using a greater understanding of the show (and themselves!) students learn their vocal parts, staging and choreography.
SPRING: All of the learning, relationship building and hard work culminates in multiple performances for their family and friends.
The musical for the 2019/2020 season is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
