FALL SESSION CLASSES
at the BrightSide Theatre Rehearsal Space
Taught by Artistic Director, JEFFREY CASS
SEPTEMBER 7- OCTOBER 5
As your little one gets curious with their creativity, using their naturally large imaginations and flairs for the dramatic… let’s shape it and have some fun! Your little one will connect to peers with kinesthetic play and learning, trying on new characters and fantastic settings, and a beginning literacy exploration as each week is connected to a book. *This is a drop off class with a performance for their caretakers to experience at the end the last session.
Students will explore their creativity through movement, singing and acting with some of the classic Disney hits like The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Alice in Wonderland and Beauty and the Beast. Using warm-ups, group activities, theatre games and performance will prepare them for a group showcase.
Using some of today’s hottest Broadway Shows (Hamilton, Dear Evan Hansen, School of Rock, Aladdin, Frozen, Wicked, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, etc.) students jump into the world of musical theatre by exploring movement, vocal technique and how to build a character. They start their journey through warm-ups, group activities, theatre games, scene work, acting through song and movement ending with a showcase performance
This class focuses on strengthening audition and callback skills in the educational setting including musicals and straight plays. Students discuss and learn material selection strategies that will better prepare them for auditions, then participate in full mock audition processes, complete with callback experiences and in-depth feedback. They will also gain practical knowledge, like how to compile and format a resume, what makes a good headshot and more.
