As part of the Centenary Stage Company's mission to introduce and develop arts in education within the community, TYRO I for ages 6 - 8 and TYRO II for ages 9 - 11 is a two-week theatre arts program designed specifically for young thespians.
Using structured theatre activities which focus on expression, confidence building and fun, young thespians will learn acting technique through a variety of theatre games and improvisations. The two week program culminates with a presentation inspired by fairy tales and folk tales.
