The Mini Players

This enchanting class is for students who have some experience in theatre, and have a basic understanding of the terms and skills that go into theatre arts. We incorporate games and theater lessons that relate to the production they are rehearsing, to help better understand their characters and movements on stage and to enhance their performance. This class runs a full semester to give students time to learn what it takes to put on a more professional show with a final performance open to the public to purchase tickets. Each semester we challenge the students with either a stage acting based class or a musical theatre based class.

Designed to engage your student in a more professional style production, this class challenges students to take a close look on how to develop a character throughout the rehearsal process. We teach students how to “rip” apart their scripts inside and out, fully commit to a character from beginning to end, and learn the importance of working as an ensemble to create and produce their own show. This class is a full semester and will be given two performances open for the public to purchase tickets.
