This will be an ongoing class about acting and theatre. Since it takes a lot to get a play from conception on to the stage, this course will not only focus on acting, but also on all the different divisions of theatre that come together to make an excellent performance happen. Topics include how to work on a character, different acting methods, improvisation, movement, singing, dancing, music on stage and theatre history. Furthermore, there will be guest speakers coming in to talk about the other departments of theatre – from the house manager to the set builder, costumers, make-up or lighting designers.
This workshop is an opportunity for children to learn more about theatre than just memorizing lines and putting on a costume… Join us for a very engaging summer!

Prepare to get your hands and clothes grubby! In this on-going class, students will assist in painting and making scenic decisions for Blue Room Theatre’s September production of Doctor Doolittle Jr. held at Laxson Auditorium. Students will learn scenic art and painting techniques, basic color theory, sketching techniques, creative problem solving, preparation and tool care. You will learn through exploration and execution how to take a theatrical set design and bring it to life through paint, fabric and set dressing. This class is offered on a weekly basis. To see the project from start to finish and for the full learning experience, all 5 weeks of our program are recommended as this class and project will progress from week to week.
