In a beautiful professional theatre space, kids (ages 8-12) 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 SESSION: Our instructors 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 partner, to break down text to find meaning, to inhabit a character with their whole body, and to find their physical power.
WINTER SESSION: 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 SESSION: All of their learning, relationship building and hard work culminates in multiple performances for their family and friends.
*There are no rehearsals over Christmas or March Break
COST: $795+HST *50% due upon registration to secure the spot. The remainder can be invoiced monthly, per session, or all at once in October. See our REFUND POLICY for more details.
The musical for the 2019/2020 season will be Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
