Register for our 2023-2024 Season
Welcome to the Fall Term of 2023! We hope you have all had a wonderful summer holiday. For our intermediate and advanced students we can't wait to get back to exciting drama games, hilarious improv exercises, and learning stage acting and creation through monologues and scene work. Towards the end of the term we will be auditioning, casting, and beginning rehearsal for our December production! Stay tuned for our performance announcement! We know our students are going to put on the most spectacular show you've ever seen!
The focus of the Junior Program is to encourage cooperation and group awareness. The “good” group feeling generated by physical movement and energetic drama activities promotes trust in and sensitivity to others required for social growth. The Junior Drama program is designed to introduce storytelling, pantomime, improvisation, dance, drama and voice. The program culminates in a final performance.
The intermediate Program is designed to introduce actors to specific techniques in order to develop their mind, voice and body for a confident and honest performance. Improvisation and scripted scene study provide fluency in acting fundamentals like conflict, action and given circumstances. As collaboration is essential to the creation of theatre, students will develop the social skills required to find creative solutions as a member of a team, to confidently give voice to original ideas, and grow respect towards the ideas of their peers. The drama curriculum introduces improvisation, script-writing, comedy, contemporary dance, role playing, mask, mime, voice, dance and physical theatre. The program culminates in a final performance.
The Advanced Program builds on the fundamentals taught in the Intermediate Program to become bold and daring actors. Improvisation plays a strong role in the Advanced Program, allowing actors to follow their instincts and impulses. Character work is introduced, as well as drawing on the life experiences of the actor to share an honest and organic performance. The advanced drama program covers improvisation, script-writing, comedy, classical theatre training techniques, stage combat and musical theatre. The program culminates in a final performance.
Children's Arts Theatre School could not be more excited to resume in-person classes this September! We are so excited for our (Term 1) Show, which will be introduced at the end of the term. We will be preparing for our June Show, which will be introduced and workshopped in the Winter Term.
