Great Summer Online Musical Theatre Opportunity for Kids!
We're offering a wonderful, interactive, educational, and fun Online Musical Theatre Program! This program is geared towards kids (ages 8-11) who have had at least 6 months prior experience in learning an instrument, singing, and/or acting. From 10:00am. to 1:00pm, Monday through Friday (and several hours on Friday), kids will be involved in creating their own show from the ground up - creativity at it's best! They will choose the theme, write the story, write the script, create the characters & character voices, learn songs, experiment with 'foley' effects for the 'sound design', sing, play their instruments, and perform online for family and friends later Friday afternoon. The entire project will be tailored to meet the demands, strengths and limitations of the online platform. Zoe Vandermeer will be leading, training, facilitating and guiding the process throughout. Special focus classes will include vocal health, voice for speech, character development, movement, and more!
Our group classes are a great way to apply what you're learning in private lessons!
