ACT - Class Act session for K-2 students

Kindergarten - 2nd grade

Tuesdays and Thursdays

October 6th - November 13th

4:00 - 4:40 pm


Our storyteller dropped her book and all of the fairy tales fell out and got mixed together! Well, the audience is here, so she'll read them anyway and see what happens! In this class, each student will get to have fun playing multiple fairy tale characters as they learn a short script and perform it at the end of each class. These short performances will be recorded and edited into a final video that will be provided to each actor at the end of the class. Each day of class, students will also have the chance to play fun theatre games and work on their acting skills. This class will be offered online via Zoom.
