Behind the Mask
Students find freedom of self-expression through theatre, and even more so when performing behind a mask. Students in this course will learn the art of mask-making using a variety of media, as well as performing moving theatrical productions.
Students in this course have the opportunity to work with some of the best scene designers, costume designers, and stage make-up artists in town. Learn the art and craft of designing a set, creating beautiful costumes, and the basics of stage make-up.
Kids are natural comedians and, with some expert guidance, can master the art of on-stage performance that will get lots of giggles, not groans. The best stand-up comedians make it look easy, even though stand-up comedy is actually quite difficult. Students in this course will work with comic coaches to develop a mini-routine that’s stage-ready.
Students learn various methods for creating and performing with puppets. The course focuses on releasing inhibitions and encouraging discovery.
Students explore stories from their own lives and learn to entertain an audience through classic storytelling techniques.
Students become media investigators and explore ways to advocate for change. We will examine media messaging about body/self-image, explore how this messaging inform our opinions, and create a group advocacy project.

Improv: The Musical
This is the next level of improvisational theatre! Students in this course will work with our musical improv masters, the String Theory team, to learn the art of creating a musical theatre presentation from simple audience suggestions.
