Description: Announcing the creation of the Would Be Players Jr.!
I am very excited to announce the Spring 2015 Program as we will be introducing new concepts of theater to our older, more experienced actors and offering a program to address the specific needs of beginning younger actors!
Due to the current size of the class as well as the growing experience of some of our older actors, we will be splitting it into smaller groups primarily based on age.
The Would Be Players Sr. class will meet Monday and Tuesday for ages 12 to 18.
The Would Be Players Jr. class will meet on Wednesday and Thursday for ages 6 through 11.
(Note that these age classifications are estimates inasmuch as some children maybe more experienced and/or mature than others. For example, we may place an 11 year old in the advanced group and/or a 12 year old in the beginners group.)
Classes for the 12 - 18 years old will begin on Monday, March 2, 2015. This program will be for the more advanced actors and will introduce new acting techniques and material.
Classes for the 6 - 11 years old will begin on Wednesday, March 4, 2015. This program will be for new and young actors.
Children new to the program will be evaluated the first week and, based upon experience and level of maturity, may be moved from one group to the other. Before a child is moved, we will discuss it with you, the parents. The child will not be told until the move is discussed and agreed upon.
Both the Would Be Players Sr. Program and the Would Be Players Jr. Program Each program lasts for 6-8 weeks and finishes with a production at the Playhouse that is opened to the public. This program incorporates the basics of theater acting, vocal training, body language, stage presence, blocking, etc. There will be some lecturing but most of the sessions would involve acting games giving the actors the opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned. Scripts will be distributed throughout the training. There will be a final script to be used in a performance for the final week of classes.
Why theater for children?
Theater, unlike anything else, can really help a child to mature.
1. Theater is a "team-sport". Everyone has to do his or her part in order to make a production work.
2. It can create enormous pressure. Getting up on stage and performing is notoriously nerve-wracking. It can help pull a shy child out of his/her shell.
3. It teaches discipline. You have to learn your lines or look foolish on stage.
4. Each play has a message that a child can learn from.
5. Theater takes a child away from the television, computer or mall and forces them to socialize with his/her peers.
6. You can develop wonderful relationships between kids of all ages. As I've seen time and time again, the older actors love helping the younger actors.
Most importantly, the things that a student learns in acting class will stay with him/her their entire life. Math may be forgotten. History may be forgotten, but each student will never lose the ability to stand up in front of a group of people and present themselves favorably. Theater is one "stage" that you want your child to go through!
