The theater kicks off 2015 with im­prov classes (Satur­days, 9 a.m.11 a.m.) that run Jan. 10 – Feb. 28. Stu­dents ages 11-15 will learn how to use their imag­i­na­tions to cre­ate char­ac­ters and tell sto­ries while think­ing on their feet in this fast-paced class. Tim­ing and team­work are just a few of the skills they’ll hone as they prac­tice short and long-form im­prov games. Chil­dren will learn how to har­ness their tal­ent and learn en­sem­ble skills. Classes cost $175.

They will learn num­bers from clas­sic mu­si­cals as they de­velop the fun­da­men­tals of vo­cal and act­ing tech­niques. The seven-week class will cul­mi­nate in a mu­si­cal re­vue. Classes cost $195.

For chil­dren ages 5-6, The­atre Hori­zon of­fers sen­sa­tional sto­ry­telling (Satur­days, 2 p.m.-4 p.m.) in three dif­fer­ent ses­sions that run Oct. 4-25, 2014; Feb. 7-28, 2015; and April 4-25 2015.

In this class, chil­dren use their imag­i­na­tion, cos­tumes, props, and team­work to bring some of their fa­vorite sto­ries to life. Work­ing as an en­sem­ble, they work to adapt a well-known story and are in­tro­duced to the­atri­cal con­cepts like character, set­ting, plot and per­for­mance. Each ses­sion is priced at $90, or $270 for all three.
