Pre-Professional Ensemble

STC’s Pre-Professional Ensemble classes allow students to tap into their imaginations by starting a lifelong relationship with theatre. In a nurturing, non-competitive atmosphere, students gain self-confidence while increasing skills in public speaking and cooperation. With concentration on character development, improvisation, and the rehearsal process, Ensemble Classes incorporate theatre games, scene study, and audition techniques for students with all levels of experience. Sessions culminate in a presentation of a play and/or monologues for family and friends.

STC_YOUTH_20140322_123“To be successful on stage requires a strong sense of community, energy and shared expectations. Working together as an ensemble optimizes motivation and promotes the expectation that the actors are all in it together.” -Glass, Meyer, and Rose from “Universal Design for Learning and the Arts”, Harvard Educational Review

HIGH SCHOOL PLAYWRITING CLASSES
Wednesdays 4:30-6:00pm ($200)

September 11-November 20, 2020 (10 sessions)

[No class 11/6]

Class Objectives:  The class will focus on three fundamental elements of playwrighting:  Character, structure, and dialogue.  Each week students will be asked to bring in a short piece of whatever they are working on, which will be read and reviewed in the classroom.  Every student will be required to write separate scenes or one short play no more than 10 minutes in length. The scenes or plays will then be “commissioned” by student directors to perform in a workshop format.   It’s fine if a student wants to bring in something they have already written or are working on, but the purpose of the class is to generate some sort of NEW work.
