SOLO PERFORMANCE
Grades 3–7 (Ages 8–12)

Live theater is on hold, And while that is the case we are taking advantage of the classic One Person Show! This class is based on the idea of the solo performance piece where one actor is the whole show. Being remote is difficult, but we are challenging students to create a full piece while only relying on themselves for the final product. As a group we will help each other build individual performances that reflect our current day to day lives. Students will perform, give feedback, dance, sing, and act. A final performance is included!
