Community Theatre Program

Fall 2016

Welcome to a New Year of Community Children’s Theatre!


Childrens Theatre


Who?

          Children in grades 1-8 for the current academic year

 Where?

          The Creative Arts Center on the WVU Evansdale Campus

 What?

          Here at WVU Children’s Theatre we strive to allow your children to learn and grow in acting, singing, and dancing through activities, games, and performing opportunities, all while having fun. We will work together as a team to create something magical in a whole different world than the one they live in each day. This is a supportive, caring, and helpful environment where kids can be themselves and express themselves through the performing arts without the fear of being judged.

 

          All children enrolled will also be cast in a musical that will be performed in the spring, and learn what it is to work as a team to produce a show. No previous experience is necessary! The children's theatre staff will work through the script with the kids, helping them in every stage of rehearsal and performance along the way.


Voice lessons

When

          Classes are Sundays from 4-6pm, beginning September 11, 2016. Some exceptions will be made due to holidays and school breaks. Additional rehearsal time may be added once it gets close to show time. A full calendar will be given to parents on the first day.

          The classes will culminate in a fully staged musical in the Falbo Theatre with three performances on February 18 & 19, 2017.
