Class Descriptions

Act It Out!

Taught by Lizzie Charlton

Learn how to act and create a character in this class! Children will practice working on stage with others, staying in character, and delivering lines with emotion in a comfortable and supportive environment. Stage direction, clear delivery of lines, working with others, and applying theatre games are just a few of the skills we will practice weekly.

2nd-5th grades

Musical Theatre

Learn acting basics, including the physicality of acting (movement of body and projection) and the internalizing of the character (facial expression and line delivery). Students will be taught a few songs with choreography and blocking to be performed at a showcase at the end of the semester.
