Welcome to Theater
Students will explore character creation and storytelling, which is at the heart of acting on the stage. They will experience a wide variety of activities focused on basic theater concepts such as ensemble, actor’s tools, sharing the stage, dialogue, and action. July 17 – July 21

Teens and tweens will learn improvisation is a fun team sport! Students will discover a newfound confidence and appreciation for the fearless actor.

Play Production

Students will follow the theatrical process from beginning to end. Within the context of a published play, students will audition for roles, memorize lines, learn stage movement, create dynamic characters, and finally perform for a live audience onstage. As in any full production, it will be complete with costumes, props, and a set. This is a great opportunity for Compass Rose Theater students to utilize their learned skills in a production.

For middle school students, August 14 – 18, 2023
