Fall 2016 Theatre Classes

Theatre Thursdays! We are offering Theatre workshops for kids in grades 1-4 and 5-8 on Thursdays, September 22 – November 10, 2016.

Elementary Group, grades 1-4, will meet from 4:00-5:00 at the Chalberg Theatre at Central Lakes College. We’ll be writing a script together with the theme of Fall, Harvest, Halloween, and Thanksgiving. Millie and Willie have a bumper crop in their straw bale garden. They need the neighborhood kids to help them with the harvest. While they’re picking potatoes, and gathering tomatoes, the kids tell jokes, sing songs, plan their Halloween costumes and Thanksgiving party. The students will write their own play under the guidance of playwright Mary Aalgaard and her assistants.

Middle School Group, grades 5-8, will meet from 5:30-7:00 at the Chalberg Theatre at Central Lakes College. The Middle School class will also write a play together using the themes of Fall, Harvest, and the holidays. We will take some time in the beginning sessions to develop characters and write a script, including scenes that individuals and small groups create.

We will meet on Thursdays, except for October 20 (MEA break), and will have a final performance on the last day of class for friends and family, free and open to the public. The cost of the class is $50 per student. Please stop by or call the CLC box office during workday hours (Please leave a message if it’s after hours. They will get back to you.) 218-855-8199. Please contact Mary if you have further questions. 218-232-6069, mary@playoffthepage.com.
