The Caetani Centre is launching a series of new youth theatre programs. Classes are not yet full, and there is still time to register for the ongoing sessions starting January 24.
With the new Caetani Studio Gallery space now available, the Centre has begun to expand its programming and is welcoming new audiences, filling a much needed niche in the community through developing new partnerships with other community organizations.
Students will be introduced to acting techniques and theatre skills – improvisation, character building, script analysis, creative movement, and vocal work. Classical theatre (Shakespeare!) along with contemporary plays will be studied and performed in a workshop style environment where emphasis will be put on directing and collaborating together as a team. Throughout the ten week session and a final showcase performance, these budding young thespians will hone the necessary skills to succeed in theatre and beyond.
