Life lessons on the theater stage

We are preparing for a new year’s theater production, the Wiz.  The kids are having fun learning the new production.  We had great fun too watching their rehearsals and their preview.  But it’s not all just fun and games.  Through our theater classes, our kids learn a lot of important life skills as well.  

Students learn the in and outs of theater production character – development, vocalization, movement, stage direction, coldreading auditions, costume and set design, lighting, and stage management. All programs culminate with a performance.  Through these lessons, our kids gain 21st Century skills of creativity, innovation, critical thinking and collaboration.  These skills will serve them a lifetime.  On top of it all, our kids develop confidence to face whatever future they dare to imagine.  

Don’t just take our words for it, check out what past participants in our Theater program learned in their own words:
