Education Corner: Dec 2017 – Acting Conservatory


This week our fall Acting Conservatory classes wrap up with students showcasing for their friends and family all that they have been working on this term. Over 175 students ranging in age from 6-17 in 14 different classes will be showing-off their acting skills in everything ranging from monologues, improvisation, sketch comedy, student-devised scenes, and showstopping musical numbers. It is always an exciting time for students to display their hard work and acting talents.


And as we wrap up one term, we are gearing up for the next. This winter/spring session of Acting Conservatory we will tackle the rehearsal process as our First Stage (ages 6-7), Center Stage (ages 7-8) and Junior Conservatory (ages 9-11) classes will be working on scripted plays in each of their classes. Students will be cast in a role, memorize lines, learn blocking, choreography, songs, and, of course, build a character to be performed for an audience. First Stage students will be working on an adaptation of a popular children’s book, Center Stage will be working on The Great Law, based on an Ojibwe tale and Junior Conservatory students will tackle the story of a tricky dragon and a beleaguered dragon-slayer and his amazingly cleve horse. Our Teen students will be honing their acting skills through monologues, scenes and improvisation in Acting Nuts & Bolts (ages 12-17.) Registration for our upcoming winter/spring session is currently open and classes are filling up fast. Come join in the fun!
