    June Intensives at Wheelock Family Theatre

    B9. For ages 6-8. Fractured Fairy Tales.

    Challenges students to retell classic fairy tales by changing elements of plot, setting, and design; adding new characters, and whatever their imaginations suggest! Improvisation and rehearsal of their original fractured tales culminates in a Friday morning demonstration for families and friends!

    C9. For ages 9-11. Designing, Making, and Using Stage Props.

    The magic of a professional theatre production often relies on the contributions of people who are never seen by the audience. Students will learn how to design and construct props that fool the eye—turning Styrofoam into wood or metal and transforming lights and strips of cloth into a blazing fire! Improvisation, using movement and imagination, will provide opportunities for students to integrate their props into performance.

    D9. For ages 12-16. Meisner Acting Technique for Teens.

    The goal of Meisner technique is to live truthfully under given imaginary circumstances. Students will bring the spontaneity of improvisation to work with text. Meisner is an essential element in an actor’s education and fun to learn as well! An exciting opportunity to work with foremost Meisner instructor Lyralen Kaye.

    D9.01. For ages 13-18. Musical Theatre Scene Study.

    This 5-day program challenges advanced musical theatre students to truly combine the crafts of singing, acting, and dancing in comic and dramatic musical theatre songs and scenes. The class will focus on developing complex characters through work on related musicals and plays and on building the skills necessary to tell a compelling story. Limited class size offers uniquely intensive and personalized coaching by experienced professionals, M. Lynda Robinson and Grace Napier. On the final afternoon, students will perform in a brief demonstration on the Wheelock Family Theatre main stage. By invitation and/or audition only.
