DRAMA WORKSHOP

In our Drama workshops we build fundamental drama skills including tableau, mime, projection, storytelling, voice work, and stage craft. Students learn a variety of Shakespearean archetypes to create and present their own two-minute play. The Drama workshop is available at different levels, and a good fit from kindergarten to high school.

Curriculum Connections: Collaboration, performance, storytelling, movement.

Recommended for all ages.

 

IMPROV WORKSHOP

The basics of improv and its “yes, and!” mentality are taught through a variety of fun and interactive games. At the end of the class students perform an improvised presentation of an infomercial. A second improv workshop can be booked where we further explore these skills with different games and presentation opportunities.

Curriculum Connections: Risk-taking, team-work, problem solving, performance

Recommended for Grade 6 and up

 

DRAMA AND LITERACY WORKSHOP

As a class we will read a story and use it as inspiration to bring it to life with our very own play. Students will explore drama games and exercises.

Curriculum Connections: Language arts, storytelling, performance

Recommended for Grade 4 and under.

 

SHAKESPEARE WORKSHOP

Our Shakespeare workshop can be tailored to your needs! Available in either a lecture or interactive drama class format, this workshop focuses on the Shakespeare play of your choice and explores the text through exercises. Available for English or Drama classes.

Curriculum Connections: Performance, language arts, history

Recommended for High School

 

ANTI-BULLYING WORKSHOP

Theatre is a great way to engage students’ empathy and is therefore a perfect place to begin conversations around bullying. In this workshop we use role-play and exercises in motivation, ensemble work, and raising the stakes to educate on the different types of bullying, explore bullying prevention, and what to do when encountering a bully.

Curriculum Connections: role-playing, community values, performance, interrelationships

Recommended for Grade 2 and up
