Storybook Musical Theatre, the Abington-based, professional children’s theater company will be offering acting classes for children ages 5 to 11 at the St. Peter’s Church, 654 N Easton Rd, Glenside, starting the week of September 17, 2018.
The classes will run for eight weeks and end with a special student workshop showcase on November 17, 2018.
Classes are divided into age groups, Kindergarten to 2nd grade and 3rd to 6th grade. Some of the classes offered are entitled “I’ve Got Rhythm”, which will enable students to learn about music, singing and rhythm through the use of theater games and improvisation. “Make Believe” will introduce children to the stage and help develop confidence and speaking skills. “Sound of Music” will give the students experience in musical theater by singing, dancing and acting. They will also learn character development through the use of monologues and scene work.
Professional actors teach the classes. The artist/teachers are involved in Storybook’s mainstage productions and its popular literacy outreach “Page to Stage” program that is conducted in many schools throughout the Philadelphia area.
