Kids & Teens Workshops
STUDENTS “ACTING IT UP” AT WHEATON DRAMA
A six week workshop designed to strengthen the acting “muscle” for students in grades 3 through 8. Through acting games and exercises, each week students will work on a different aspect of acting technique such as movement, voice, characterization, pantomime, plus others. Teamwork, focus and listening are added benefits in this acting workshop. Students will also work on a short 15 min skit to apply the skills learned and will perform at the end of the last class. All sessions will be on Thursday afternoons at 4:30 – 5:30:
- Dates: October 26, November 2, 9, 16, 30 and December 7th (No class on November 23 for Thanksgiving)
- WHERE: 111 N. Hale Street, Wheaton, IL 60187
- TUITION: $125
