New to GRSF this season, this program gives students who have completed 2nd to 5th grade a chance to build a foundation of skills in acting and performance while exploring the wonders of Shakespeare.
Students will explore voice, movement and imagination, in addition to monologue and scene work while practicing listening and speaking skills and building confidence–all essential acting traits. This fun, active program will culminate in an informal performance and all participants receive a family discount to see the GRSF company in action at one of the professional shows. Information about Will’s Power Players for Season 12 will be available in January 2015.
Due to enrollment, this program will only run Tuesday, July 22nd-July 26th.
