OCT’s new Performing Arts Club is specially made for our community’s non-traditional learners.  Once a week, join other creative youth to explore theatre arts in a nurturing and fun community at our theatre.  Open to all levels of experience, OCT’s PAC is led by Director of Education Terry LeCompte.  Objectives of the programming include strengthening of creative problem solving, teamwork, and communication skills (verbal, nonverbal, and written). The PAC’s projects will be designed specifically for the community of learners enrolled. The engaging hands-on programming will include a playful combination of all-in theatre games, improvisation, character and story development, writing, and scene and monologue practice.   At the end of each term, we will celebrate with a PAC Closing Ceremony.

Songs and Stories - Term 1 Wednesdays; 5:00pm to 6:00pm

For ages 9 - 12  Songs and Stories - Term 1

Our musical theatre journey returns to OCT this school year.  We will travel through space and time by exploring some well-known stories of today while tracing them back to their origins.  Most Disney stories originate in international folklore and fairytales, while superheroes in comic books are considered modern mythology. Stories throughout the ages have captured our imagination.  Look at them a fun and playful new way – through acting, singing, and dancing!

Actors of all experience levels will develop their skills in physical and emotional character development through the exploration of acting techniques, theatre exercises, drama games, scene/monologue work, and/or improvisation.  Through independent, partner, and small group work, learners will develop greater self-confidence while also increasing their respect for community and their understanding of the “work” of acting.  No experience is necessary – only a willingness to try new things!
