Bringing Stories to Life 2 Mondays and Wednesdays, 4:30- 5:45 PM 12

Bringing Stories to Life 2

Instructor - Riley Forrest

Ages 6-12

Mondays and Wednesdays, Jan. 26 through Feb. 28

4:30- 5:45 PM

This class uses the concept of Dramatic Playbuilding, or Devised Theatre. Devising is the process of turning anything — a story, a song, poem, or even a dream — into a theatrical performance for an audience to enjoy. The process of devising includes, but is not limited to, teamwork, creative writing, improv, and movement. This class allows students to create and adapt a story from their own point of view, with the opportunity to expand their imagination and work together as a team to create something fun and meaningful without the limitations of adult point of views or a script.

No special clothing or equipment required. This class is appropriate for all levels of experience. 

Cost: $125
