Acting For Stage

Oct. 16, 2023 - Nov. 13, 2023

Mondays, 4:00PM - 5:30PM

All levels are welcome, as this class is the first step to building confidence and a solid foundation in the art of acting. Students will learn basic theatre terms and skills in a supportive and creative environment. They will learn to create characters, analyze a script, and make strong and exciting choices in both comedic and dramatic scenes.



Movement for Musicals

Jan. 17, 2024 - Feb. 14, 2024

Wednesdays, 4:00PM - 5:30PM

You don't need to be a dancer to be a triple threat! In this course, students will learn basic steps that are often repeated in musical dance numbers, get an appreciation for choreography and different styles of theater dance, and learn a new dance each week to their favorite Broadway show tunes! No experience in dance is required. Sneakers or dance shoes are preferred for this course- no open-toed shoes or boots.


Intro to Improv

Nov. 20, 2023 - Dec. 18, 2023

Mondays, 1:30PM - 3:00PM

Improvisation skills are the foundation of any successful performance, and not just in the theatre! Teamwork, listening, spontaneity, and thinking quickly on your feet are all skills that will be developed during this course. Students learn the rules of improv by playing improv exercises and games. Excellent for students looking to boost self-confidence and positivity!

*This time slot is to accommodate home school students, but anyone can sign up!


Audition Techniques

Feb. 21, 2024 - March 20, 2024

Wednesdays, 4:00PM - 5:30PM

In this course, students will "Build their Book" for auditions. They will work on their resumes, have headshots taken, choose and work on one comedic and one dramatic monologue, and choose and work on two song cuts: one uptempo and one ballad. During the final session of the course, they will each have a mock audition and receive feedback from the panel. This course is specifically designed to prepare students to audition for the Granite Theatre's Youth Production, as auditions will be held shortly after the course is completed. Students registered for this class are not required to audition for the show.


Acting Through Song

Nov. 20, 2023 - Dec. 18, 2023

Mondays, 4:00PM - 5:30PM

Musical theater is more than just singing and dancing; it’s acting through a song. By using material from Broadway and movie musicals, students will explore how to interpret a song, how to collaborate in small group numbers, and even how to act while dancing (or moving!). Students are asked to come prepared with one song that they would like to work on throughout the course, and will be taught an additional song throughout the sessions.
