CLASSES FOR YOUTH

The Scoundrel & Scamp Theatre offers workshops and ensemble training for youth, with an emphasis on the collaborative nature of the theatrical art.  We partner with local middle and high schools to shape the complete theatre artist, onstage, backstage, and front-of-house.

Foundations in Theater

for youth ages 9-13

Begins in September 2018

Foundations in Theater is a semester-long course recommended for students ages 9-13 who wish to learn the basics of theater through experiential activities, games, collaboration and storytelling. Students will learn about writing, performance, and technical theatre. The course will cultivate a sense of dedication to craft, respect for fellow artists, and joy in performing. The semester will culminate in a showcase of student work. 

 

Foundations in Acting

for youth in high school

Begins in September 2018

Foundations in Acting is a semester-long course recommended for students ages 14-18 who wish to deepen their skills in monologue, scene work, and auditioning. Students will work on both Shakespearian and contemporary monologues and scenes, honing their use of language, character development, movement, expression, and scene study.  Note: Registration is limited for this course so that students will receive personalized attention. 

 

The Magic of Theater & The Theater of Magic

for youth ages 9-13

Begins in September 2018

In The Magic of Theater & The Theater of Magic we will explore more than just how magic tricks are done. Through classic sleight of hand and illusions we will learn the principles of magic, of prestidigitation, misdirection, forcing, timing...and other big words. 

Renowned theater artist Wolfe Bowart has entranced audiences of all ages and cultures in countries around the world with his original productions - see samples of his magical performances here. Wolfe will share his experience and knowledge with our Scamps in this class. He will help them explore ways to craft a performance that goes beyond Ta-Da moments.

And, of course, participants will be sworn to the secrets of how the magic is done.
