when kids train to put on a show, they are learning life skills:
Empathy, Teamwork, Patience, Listening, Focus, Hard Work, Awareness, Confidence, Discipline, Personal Responsibility, Body Control, Problem Solving... the list goes on!
We are pleased to offer Theater classes and productions for students at Woodstock Elementary!
Mondays (2:30-3:45pm) for Kindergarten-1st graders who want their first taste of theater; Wednesdays (2:30-5pm) for 1st-3rd graders and Thursdays (2:30-5pm) for 4th-5th graders who want to work hard and perform in a musical.
- K-1st grade: This 11 week class is one hour long and introduces kids to theater games, vocal projection, and feeling comfortable expressing themselves in a small, supportive group.
- 1st-3rd grade and 4th-5th grade - The Knight at Dawn Kids Musical: These classes are an intense rehearsal setting with activities, exercises, technique, games, dancing, singing, and acting. Some practice at home to learn songs and lines is required. We believe theater is a discipline like learning any musical instrument, sport, or martial art and expect that level of commitment in order to perform this big musical in just one semester! Kids will find out that hard work ends up being a lot of fun!
We are excited to start Theater productions at Lewelling Elementary! Our class for Fall has been canceled, but we'll have a FREE CLASS for kids later in the semester to show them what they can expect from a musical theater class in the spring! STAY TUNED
