In this class we’ll explore the basics of theatre and explore the different aspects of plays/musicals as well as a brief overview of the technical side of theatre. The class will consist of various acting games and team building activities that will allow your child to grow their knowledge of theatre and grow as a young actor. Children will learn to lose inhibitions and will gain trust in themselves as well as others in their groups.

Within this class they will discuss various topics including but not limited to plot, setting, character analysis, and character motivation.

Just think about those old-fashioned nursery rhymes and it’s easy to see why Mother Goose went to medical school and opened up a clinic in Nurseryland. There’s no “happily ever after” here! These poor nursery rhyme characters are plagued with freak accidents! A typical morning in Dr. Goose’s clinic includes a cow with a sore calf from moon-jumping, a crooked man wanting chiropractic adjustment, a daredevil who burns his seat jumping over candles, and a blonde juvenile delinquent who breaks into bears’ houses. With the help of her assistant, Nurse Gosling, Dr. Goose even runs nutritional support groups and aerobics classes for a man who eats no fat and his opposite wife, a tea-guzzling girl named Polly and a Queen who craves tarts. But will Dr. Zhivago from Fairy Tale Land close down the clinic? There are three blind mice without tails who sure hope not! Fast-paced with slapstick humor and silly situations, this imaginative weaving of nursery rhymes with modern twists offers something audiences of all ages will enjoy!
