A performance class for middle school students! This class will rehearse a play, and then take it on tour to perform for the local community, performing in libraries, schools, and community centers. The play will be professionally directed and fully produced, with costumes and a set, and its own purple bus to carry it to performance venues!

Winter 2018 Play: Beloved playwright Judith Walsh White adapts A. A. Milne’s timeless classic The House at Pooh Corner for Tigger meets Pooh, a newly commissioned play with songs (not a musical) Pooh’s pleasant routine gets bounced into chaos when the rambunctious Tigger shows up in the Hundred Acre Wood. Join Pooh, Piglet, Eeyore, Rabbit, and more of the best-loved characters in childrens’ literature as they meet strangers, have adventures, and embark on the challenge of coming to know and accept each other despite their quirks and foibles.

Our rehearsals will include text analysis, acting exercises, movement workshops and improvisational games that explore the world of the play. The class is appropriate for both experienced actors and newbies. There is no audition to enroll; auditions for roles will happen in the first weekend of classes.

6th graders can sign up for either the full session or the Player Option.
