This Spring, we are offering a groundbreaking new program called Voices Alive! Theatre for Expression and Social Change. This theatre arts and performance class will be held once a week on Thursdays at 4 PM, beginning April 13th.
Workshops and talks will be conducted by guest speakers, as students explore the work of community-based artists and educators who address social change by transforming and creating new theatre techniques. Students will choose which track they want to focus on (performance, directing, stage management, costume design, set design, makeup and hair design, dramaturgy, etc.) These tracks will then enable the students to create their own portfolios throughout the semester.
The program culminates with the presentation of a showcase written, produced, and performed by the students.
Workshops Include… Theatre and Advocacy, Acting 101, Women in the Arts, On Broadway, and much more!
