Playhouse on Park Sets Summer K-5 Programs
Summer is just around the corner, and Playhouse on Park is offering summer acting programs for Grades K-5. Each program meets two hours a day for two weeks. Students are generally grouped by grade level to focus on age appropriate acting techniques, and each session ends with a final student showcase.
For Grades K-2 there is the Creative Kids program, which introduces young children to acting with creative play. Exercises and games will focus on acting, story telling, puppetry, music, and movement. A craft and story will often be included. By the end of the class, students should be using their bodies and voices to start to create characters. Grades 3-5 will have the Young Actors program, where students gain more comfort portraying a character onstage. Topics will include basic scene work, story telling, puppetry, music, and movement / dance. The instructor for these programs is Dawn Loveland, the Director of Education at Playhouse on Park.
Registration is required; Class size is limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.
