Drama Classes



Class Overview

  • Improv Troupe: This class will use improvisational games and activities to build your improv skills and performance.  Participants will develop an awareness of world and social history, multi-media and split-second thinking and response.  This troupe may have the opportunity to perform for the community.  Presentations will be held at the end of each 10 week session.


  • How to Write a Script:  Write it!  Rehearse it!  Perform it!  Turn your unique ideas into plays as you create dialogue through improvisation.  Learn how to create dynamic characters and build conflict into your play as you first write a two minute play and then a ten minute play.
