This fun and rewarding seven-week course will cultivate creative spontaneity, acting skills and collaborative story crafting through improvisational activities and sketch comedy. Each week, students will rotate through a choice of stations that include improv games, improv puppetry, improv dance, musical improv and sketch comedy. 

 

Following the seven  week instructional classes, students will be showcased equally during an entertaining closing program on Wednesday, June 1st from 6:00 to 7:30 PM at Southside Theatre Guild 20West Campbellton Street  Fairburn, Georgia. Students arrive at 5:30 PM.

Students will find delight in dressing as a costumed character for one segment of the show.

This class will nurture performance skills in a very supportive manner through the joy of drama with fun lessons that require minimal mastering of lines. Learning of lines will only be necessary for the sketch comedy component.

Enhancement of stage presence, effective use of expression and physicality to convey meaning and the overall development of the student as a vibrant, engaging, memorable young actor will be key goals of the curriculum. While there will be a strong emphasis on comedy within the course, students will be led in increasing their capabilities as dramatic actors as well.

This course will prove to be valuable to any young person as it facilitates aptitude in reacting and responding to unexpected situations, builds confidence, fortifies team working/ensemble skills, inspires the use of creativity, promotes original thinking and encourages collaborative story crafting.

Regular weekly classes will begin Friday, April 15th from 4:00 to 6:30pm and will end with a course celebration event on Friday, June 3rd from 5:00-7:00 PM.

Students will be provided with a mid-class snack break each class in Room 3. 

 

Students enrolled in Kedron Elementary's ASP Program will be accommodated with a safe escort from the school to the Field House by Mrs. Beaucham per parent permission.
