Hear Ye, Hear Ye....

Valiant Knights and Brave Ladies of the Kingdom, please join us for a theatrical journey through the exciting middle ages, beginning this fall!

Our acting and theatre-arts program for the 2018-2019 school year is Castles and Quests Theatre!

 This fun theatre-arts and acting class introduces students to larger-than-life characters and stories from medieval history and fantasy! Dragons. Knights. Castles. Cathedrals. Jesters and wandering musicians. Kings and Queens. Princesses. Lords and Ladies. Fairies and trolls. The Plague. Epic battles and legendary crusades.  These wonderful tales - drawn both from true-life historical events and from beloved stories, music, and art of the time period - will enchant and delight boys and girls alike.

Each week, kids will discover colorful, fascinating stories from the medieval world. Then, they will bring these fabulous characters to life using drama, music, and movement.  Participants will learn basic acting skills, performance techniques, and theatre fundamentals while having fun in a safe, creative, encouraging, and non-competitive environment.

Combining world history and cultures, geography, fantasy and adventure, interesting characters, fearsome monsters, and the magic of theatre, this class is a wonderful way to get boys and girls energized about the stories that have been inspiring and entertaining us for over 1,000 years!

Plus, it's a wonderful introduction to theatre arts like pantomime, improvisation, acting, and creative movement for young performers of all experience levels!

This class will end with a presentation for friends and family where each child will play the role of an important character for the audience!
