THEATRE FOR KIDS - EDUCATION OUTREACH

In the Fall and Spring of each year, Theatre Jacksonville offers after-school classes. Theatre helps build important life skills, self-esteem, and confidence, all while providing students with fun, enjoyment, and a sense of accomplishment!

 

With a focus on storytelling, even in these "virtual" times, 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.

TUESDAYS in February

Animated Voices (Ages 9-13) Tuesdays 4:00pm

Have a great Donald Duck voice? Maybe you have a flair for accents? Or maybe you just want to know what it takes to be a voice actor for an animated feature. Join us for our virtual session of Animated Voices; a course where students will be introduced to the art of creating an animated character through voice. Students will be introduced to media containing behind the scenes work from famous voice actors and then applying it to their own voice work as we find the different personalities that live in the instrument we all use every day.

 

HollyZoom Squares (Ages 11-15) Tuesdays 5:30pm

Embracing the world of Virtual Squares that we live in, at the end of these sessions students will participate in a virtual game show a la Hollywood Squares where students will flex their impression skills. Students will choose notable people (real or not) to study their vocal and physical habits over the course of a few weeks in an attempt to deliver an improvisational performance that transforms them into someone new but familiar.

 

  

WEDNESDAYS in February

Greek Mythology (Ages 9-13) Wednesdays 5:00pm

If you like myths, legends, stories of sea monsters and winged horses, then join us for our Greek Mythology class. Starting from the Titans we will learn about the creation of Greek Mythology and heroes like Odysseus and Hercules. Each class students will be tasked with mythical puzzles, riddles and crafts as we expand our knowledge on a set of Myths that is the foundation for many archetypes and literary characters we know today. 

 

THURSDAYS in February

Puppets Tonight! (Ages 8-11) Thursday 4:00pm

In these session students will learn how to bring inanimate objects to life by learning the art of speaking with a puppet. Students will take a virtual tour of the creation and manipulation of the world’s most famous puppets and their puppeteers. On the last class our “puppets” will take over the zoom platform for their own improvisational story time.

 

Lip Sync Battles (Ages 10-14) Thursday 5:30pm

Pop song, rock song, musical, commercial, TV scene, you name it and it’s probably been lip synced by someone. Students will have a fun time being challenged with different lip sync missions (lip sync a famous cartoon scene, lip sync a singer you sound nothing like, give a song new meaning, etc.). It’s not about just moving the lips to words, students will learn how useful a skill like lip syncing is in character creation, motivation and confidence building.
