Playhouse on Park Offering Acting Programs for Grades K-5 this Fall

The new school year is beginning, and so are acting classes at Playhouse on Park. For students in grades K-5, classes are nine weeks long, with fall, winter, and spring sessions. Each class meets once a week for an hour. Students are grouped by grade level to focus on age appropriate acting techniques, and each session ends with a final student showcase.

For grades K &1 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. These lessons will be continued in Creative Kids Plus, which is for grades 1 & 2. Grades 3 & 4 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. These lessons will be continued in Young Actors Plus for grades 4 & 5. The instructors for these programs are Dawn Loveland, the Director of Education at Playhouse on Park, and Katie Lorraine-Mace.

Registration is required; Class size is limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information on these programs, visit, call 860-523-5900 x10 or email
