Winter/Spring 2010 Acting Classes from Civic Youth Theatre: Musical Theatre for the Younger Actor


Civic Youth Theatre Director Melanie R. Buchanan will be teaching three classes in late winter/early spring 2010: Creative Dramatics, Musical Theatre for the Younger Actor and Improv Techniques. Each class has two separate sessions. Students can choose one session or the other.

Musical Theatre for the Younger Actor is for students in Grade 1, 2 or 3. The first session of the class begins January 12 and runs through February 16, with classes from 4:30-5:30 p.m. each Tuesday. The second session of this class begins April 6 and runs through May 11, with classes from 4:30-5:30 p.m. each Tuesday.

Students will learn the basics of musical theatre, and different techniques for acting in a musical will be explored. Students do not need to have any previous training in theatre or vocal performance to participate. At the conclusion of the class there will be a Share Day, when parents will be invited to observe the class.

The cost of this class is $65 for members of Civic Theatre, $70 for non-members. There are a limited number of scholarships for classes.
