SCT offers Winter Youth Acting Classes
SALEM - Salem Community Theatre is offering Winter Youth Acting Classes commencing Jan. 12. Classes will be held on five consecutive Saturdays, with a "Work Sharing" session on Feb. 16 for parents and family to observe student progress. Classes will be divided into three age groups.
Grades one to three (9:30 to 10:45 a.m.): "Tales From the Treasure Chest." In this creative drama class, the chest may contain costume pieces, props, musical instruments, puppets or other "odds and ends" to play with and use to create a new story each day.
Grades four to six (11 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.): "Make a Hobbit of It." Students will learn the basics of acting, stage skills and performance techniques through the use of classic improvisational games and drama exercises. They will then apply those skills to create, rehearse and perform their own original fantasy story.
Grades seven to 12 (12:30 to 1:45 p.m.): "Acting 101." This class covers the fundamentals of voice and body techniques, improvisation, character building, stage skills, script analysis and auditioning.
All classes are taught by Patricia M. Fagan, drama instructor, director and playright. The fee is $50 per student.
SCT's newly announced 2012-13 theatrical season includes two youth productions, "The Best Christmas Pageant Ever" and "Willie Wonka Jr." For more information and registration call Fagan at 330-788-1498, the box office at 330-332-9688, or visit salemcommunitytheatre.org.
