HAPPY BIRTHDAY MR. SHAKESPEARE: Fairies and Kings and Witches. Oh My! CLASS OBJECTIVES & GOALS: Starting as young as Kindergarten, children’s natural acting ability comes to life as they learn basic acting skills, stage direction, group interaction and the importance of individual scene work as well as the power of an ensemble. Through listening, observing, improvisational exercises, vocalizing, and other theatre games, beginners take the stage, which in turn enhances their confidence and self-esteem. Intermediate and more advances students move on to more detailed scene work, acting technique and character development as they hone skills that will serve them well both on and off the stage. The last day of class includes and informal performance for the family.
