WaterTower Theatre Adds New Saturday Morning Children's Class
Producing Artistic Director Terry Martin today announced that WaterTower Theatre has added a new program to its multi-dimensional education and community outreach efforts with the addition of new Saturday Morning Theatre Classes for children. The 8-week session of classes will begin September 28 and run through November 16, 2013 every Saturday morning from 9 am to 12 noon. The classes are targeted to children in grades 1 through 6. The cost of the class is $250 per student.
This new program will provide an introduction to theatre and different cultures around the world. The classes will cover such areas as creative dramatics, improvisation, pantomime, script work, rhythm exercises, theatre techniques and terms, stage directions, enunciation and projection. The students will learn helpful tools for public speaking, individual creativity, team work and listening skills.
The Saturday morning classes will be conducted by Kim Borge.
WaterTower Theatre's education mission is to nurture the academic and emotional education of young people through theatre; and to make the rich benefits reaped from the experience available to all socio-economic levels and all traditionally underserved populations in Addison and Dallas.
WaterTower Theatre offers a wide variety of education programs such as the Summer Performing Arts Conservatory, After School Drama Program, Meisner Acting Classes, Internships, Student Matinee performances and discounted tickets to preview performances as part of our new Explore@WTT program.
WaterTower Theatre's education and community outreach programs are supported, in part, by a number of sponsors including the Town of Addison, the Texas Commission on the Arts, TACA, the 500 Inc., Frost Bank, The Civic League, Target, The Nissan Foundation as well as many individual donors.
