THEATRE FOR KIDS - EDUCATION OUTREACH
In the Fall and Spring of each year, Theatre Jacksonville offers after-school classes in our Young Actors Theatre Workshops and Musical Theatre Workshops with a show & tell for invited guests at the end of each session. This year we're so excited to be diversifying our offerings so scroll down and take a look!
Young Actors Theatre Workshop - 10 Weeks
Theatre helps build important life skills, self-esteem, and confidence, all while providing students with fun, enjoyment, and a sense of accomplishment! We strive to provide a safe, comfortable environment where kids can express themselves freely, develop their imaginations, and expand their social skills by interacting with others their age. Through improv exercises, poetry study, monologue and scene work our students will enhance their stage presence and gain the skills for proper stage performance.
$250 per student, per session. Discounts available when enrolling in multiple sessions or with siblings.
Spring 2020 Workshops begin the week of January 21, 2020.
Registration begins November 19, 2019.
TUESDAYS (GRADES 2nd-4th) 4:00pm-5:30pm
This acting workshop is for beginning and young actors, as we explore the basics of theatre through fun activities and theatre games. How do the rules of play translate to the stage? How can we conquer our fear and embolden our confidence through the lens of fun? This workshop requires no previous experience, just a willingness to participate and enjoy what you create.
TUESDAY (GRADES 5th-7th) 5:30PM-7:00PM
This acting workshop is for beginning and young actors, as we learn about the basics of non-verbal communication. How do we use common gestures to tell a story or the world how we feel? How do we develop a character beyond their voice? Whether it’s a shrug, hands on hips, finger to lips, head shake, head nod, make a face, smile, or wink, we communicate to others all the time. Let’s learn to tell the story we want them to hear.
WEDNESDAY (GRADES 3rd-6th) 4:30PM-6:00PM
In this workshop students will learn the basics of musical theatre, including vocal care, solo/group singing and light choreography. At the conclusion of this workshop students will perform a melody of songs they have learned.
THURSDAY (GRADES 7th-10th) 4:00pm-5:30pm
On Your Own!
It takes a lot of work to brave the stage alone, it is a whole other world when you have to rely on partners. In this workshop students will further hone their acting skills by learning to tell and further their story beyond a duet or group scene. This class requires no previous experience.
THURSDAY (GRADES 6th-12th) 5:30PM-7:00PM
The Wizarding World of Props!
It takes a lot of work to develop a character, but what about what it takes to develop the world those characters play in. Join us on this magical adventure as we explore how to make the creative props necessary to put on a fantastical production. From wands to swords, house crests to flying books, potions that bubble and plants that come to life, students will dive deep into their creative sides and come out with skills they did not know they had.
