A new term of classes and homeschool programs begin this month at NBYT! Stage Performance is held on Saturday mornings beginning January 21, and Homeschool Enrichment is held on Tuesday mornings beginning January 24. Registration for both programs has already begun for children from any town.
In both Stage Performance and Homeschool Enrichment, children study acting techniques, voice, movement, and improvisation to learn to perform together as a group. Each term, they rehearse scenes chosen especially for the children enrolled and with the input of the children themselves. Small group sizes give each child quality instruction and guarantee that everyone has a featured part in the final performance.
Stage Performance, for ages 6 through 12, is ideal for younger actors, children who want their first experience onstage—or a little more experience—or even older children who aren’t able to audition and rehearse for full productions. The small-scale performance, with simple costumes and props, is held in the last half hour of the final class and is open to family and friends. The program meets on Saturday mornings from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. for eight weeks beginning on January 21.
In Homeschool Enrichment, for ages 4 through 14, children are grouped by age for appropriate instruction and activities, but groups are flexible and subject to enrollment. Discussions about props, costumes and set pieces include making items for their own “Share Day” performance on Wednesday evening of the final week. The new term meets on Tuesdays from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. for ten weeks beginning on January 24.
