Forum Theatre

(Ages 12-18)

August 4–27, Mon/Wed/Fri | 10:00am–12:00pm
When we think of theatre, we often think of actors, on a stage, saying someone else’s words. In this class, participants will use theatre as a way to look at their own world, rather than one dictated by a playwright, and create their own theatre that shows their own interests, issues, problems, and ideas while saying their own words. Classes will consist of fun games and physical exercises, and will culminate in the performance of original, collaboratively-created theatre pieces, live onstage at The Strand!
Summary of Weeks
Week 1: Building Ensemble
Week 2: Building Characters & Exploring Relationships

Participants will rehearse and prepare the scenes developed in Week 3 for a live performance for friends & family in the Strand Theatre.
