YOUTH PROGRAMS

Why theater for youth?  

Theater, unlike anything else, can really help a child to mature. 

 

  • Theater is a "team-sport".  Everyone has to do his or her part in order to make a production work. 

  • It can create enormous pressure.  Getting up on stage and performing is notoriously nerve-wracking.  It can help pull a shy child out of his/her shell. 

  • It teaches discipline. You have to learn your lines or look foolish on stage. 

  • Each play has a message that a child can learn from. 

  • Theater takes a child away from the television, computer or mall and forces them to socialize with his/her peers. 

  • You can develop wonderful relationships between kids of all ages.  As we have seen time and time again, the older actors love helping the younger actors.

Most importantly, the things that a student learns in acting class will stay with him/her their entire life.  Math may be forgotten.  History may be forgotten, but each student will never lose their ability to stand up in front of a group of people and present themselves favorably.  Theater is one "stage" that you want your child to go through!

 

We are experiencing such large classes we will be adding a third class this Spring Season.

 

The "Novice" Class 6 - 11 yr old students - new to the stage.

The "Entertainer" Class will be for 11 - 14 yr old students.

The "Thespian" Class students 13+ - 18 yrs will be reserved for more experienced younger students and the oldest WBP.
