Act­ing for kids work­shop set

Record Observer - - Opinion -

CHURCH HILL — It’s still too cold to play out­side, the Christ­mas toys have lost their ap­peal, and ac­tive kids are itch­ing to do some­thing cre­ative, con­struc­tive, and fun. En­ter cen­ter stage: one af­ford­able, en­ter­tain­ing, and ed­u­ca­tional theatre work­shop at Church Hill Theatre!

Build­ing on its cel­e­brated Green Room Gang sum­mer theatre camps, Church Hill Theatre is once again of­fer­ing stu­dents a chance to B.A.S.K in the glow of the foot­lights in a series of Satur­day work­shops. Ba­sic Act­ing Skills for Kids, now open for en­roll­ment, will al­low 3rd through 8th graders to use games and ex­er­cises to learn about char­ac­ter de­vel­op­ment through voice and body, scene prepa­ra­tion, move­ment, and more.

Taught by ex­pe­ri­enced youth theatre di­rec­tor Becca Van Aken and CHT Ex­ec­u­tive Man­ager Nina Sharp, the group will meet from 9 a.m. to noon on Satur­days, Feb. 4, 11, 25, and March 4 and 11. The stu­dents’ the­atri­cal de­vel­op­ment will con­clude with a per­for­mance for fam­ily and friends at the end of the fi­nal class. The cost for the five ses­sions is $100, which in­cludes a keep­sake t-shirt for your young ac­tor. A ten per­cent dis­count ap­plies to all CHT mem­bers.

B.A.S.K. reg­is­tra­tion is open now through Fri­day, Jan. 27. Space is limited, so ap­ply early. Please con­tact the Church Hill Theatre of­fice at 410-5566003 or via e-mail at Of­fice@ ChurchHil­lTheatre.org to regis­ter your child or for ques­tions about this pro­gram and other up­com­ing events.

Stretch­ing is an es­sen­tial part of warm-ups for th­ese young ac­tors. Ap­ply now for Church Hill Theatre’s Ba­sic Act­ing Skills for Kids theatre work­shop, run­ning Satur­days from Feb. 4 through March 11.
