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.
The musical theater program (Saturdays, 9 a.m.-11 a.m.) runs April 25 – June 13 for students ages 7-11. Children will learn how to sing, dance, and act at the same time. 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.
