SPRING THEATER CLASSES
New Multi-Arts Class: Center for the Arts Early Childhood Rotation
Join the Visual Arts, Dance, Theater and Music department staff for a full session of fun! Kids will rotate every few weeks between the genres, making art projects, taking dance class, working on some improv, and perfecting their singing, for example. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. This class coordinates with the Early Childhood Center of Wilmette's Preschool Plus program.
New Multi-Arts Class: Musical Theater Imagination
Combining the wonderful worlds of theater and music, your child will be immersed in a creative theme each week. Starting with a theatrical adventure to an imaginary place, children will play theater games and develop skits. The second half of class will explore music through singing techniques based on a weekly theme.
Play In a Box
Cinderella, Jack and the Beanstalk, Peter Pan...each week, your Preschooler will participate in a brand new play. Parents receive a list of stories at the start of the session. We begin each class with reading a story, and then we bring it to life! Students take turns being each character, using imaginative skills and learning basic narration skills.
Kids are great at making things up! Little Imps is the class to mold that imagination into an art form. In this class, we review the basic tenets of improv through dynamic theater games and character development activities.
Private Acting Coaching
Age 8 and up
Each 30-minute private lesson is structured to personally meet the needs of the individual student. Included in each lesson is audition coaching, monologue selection and preparation, character development and personalized tips on how to build and maintain confidence and stage presence.

Create strong characters through an ensemble, monologues, writing scripts, scene assignments and improvisation. Each student also explores how to lead the class through warm-ups and theater games.
Students will intensely study character development through improvisational games and sketch comedy, and have the opportunity to sharpen their audition skills through practicing cold readings and monologues from several scripted shows. This is an advanced theater class; prior theater experience or instructor approval is required for enrollment.
