A fun and physical introduction to the fundamental building blocks of drama (body, voice, mind, and imagination). With a theme selected to spark and support the creative process, students will participate in movement exercises, story reenactments, theatre games, improvisation, role-playing, music, dance, and visual arts. At the last class, family and friends are invited to join the group to watch the creative process in action.

Sing & Dance-a-Story: A Year with Frog & Toad

Inspired by the classic stories of best friends Frog and Toad, students will learn to “sing a story” by exploring the various voices that can be produced by using appropriate vocal techniques. Students will connect voice to posture, gesture, and full-body movement through improvisation to create vivid characters. They will “dance a story” by learning to use creative movement to bring a story to life. Not all actors need to dance, but learning how to use a creative and flexible range of movement will help young actors feel more confident on stage, develop physically interesting characters, and add another skill to their actor toolbox. A final demonstration for family and friends will take place on the last day of class

Play Production - Dorothy in Wonderland

A chance to experience the whole production experience from beginning to end! Over this rehearsal process, students will design, produce, and perform Dorothy in Wonderland by Brian D. Taylor. While working on the play, they will develop their acting, creative movement, and storytelling skills while also learning more about production elements such as set, props, costumes, and sound and lighting design. This class culminates in a performance for families and friends on the final day of the class. While previous performance experience is not required, this program is ideal for students who are looking for a fun and fast-paced theatrical adventure. Performance March 13th at 7 p.m.

This program meets Sundays (2pm to 4pm), Tuesday, & Thursdays (5pm to 7pm) in-person at Wheelock Family Theatre.

About the Show:
The worlds of Oz and Wonderland collide in this fantastically fun romp, cleverly and carefully adapted from the works of L. Frank Baum and Lewis Carroll. Dorothy Gale has made her way to the end of the Yellow Brick Road, and the wonderful Wizard of Oz is just about to help her get back home to Kansas. But before she can hop into the wizard’s balloon, another whirlwind appears over the Emerald City, sweeping Dorothy, Toto, Scarecrow, Tin Man, and Lion away to Wonderland. Equipped with their new assets — brains, heart, and courage — Dorothy’s friends try to help her find her way home, meeting many other interesting characters along the way, including Alice, the White Rabbit, Mad Hatter, March Hare, the Cheshire Cat and many more. They also must face a dangerous new foe — the Queen of Hearts! Dorothy and Alice team up to defeat the queen at croquet, but will that be enough to return Wonderland to normal? And how will they ever get back home to Kansas and to London?
