Act 2 for Home Learners (Ages 9-12) This next level class provides a wonderful opportunity for those students who are keen and ready for an in-depth immersion and creation of a full one act play of their own invention. Through improvisation, writing and collaborative discussion led by the instructor, the play will be built, rehearsed and performed at the end of the session. The instructor will work to meet each student’s level of ability in all of these areas from reading, writing, creating and performing. An added component for those students who are interested in costumes or sound, lighting and set construction; will be an opportunity to create some of the production elements. Also if a child is shy and does not want as large a part on stage as some others; they can be helping out backstage or be an influence in the creation of sound affects or playing the music. Entrance into this class requires a readiness and maturity on the part of the student for this kind of focus, discipline and collective group effort. Part of the creative process is to be able to listen to others ideas and to sit quietly at times to write or discuss things. Attendance is extremely important for the class and the student to be successful in their efforts. The class will culminate in a sharing of student’s work before an in studio audience plus a showcase at a professional venue Dec 7th.
