Fall 2010 Acting Classes from Civic Youth Theatre: Aesop Theatre


Civic Youth Theatre Director Melanie R. Buchanan will be teaching three classes in Fall 2010: Aesop Theatre, Intro to Musical Theatre, and Script Analysis and Characterization.

Aesop Theatre is for students in Grades 1, 2 and 3. The class begins September 21 and runs through November 9, with classes from 4:30 p.m.-5:30 p.m. each Tuesday. Classes will be held at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette at the corner of 5th Street and North Street.

Students will create characters from Aesop's fables and put them on stage using movement and music. They will learn basic acting techniques and characterization, using skits and games. After the last class, there will be a small showcase for family and friends.

The cost of this class is $80 for members of Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette, $85 for non-members. There are a limited number of scholarships for classes.
