Does your child light up with the thought of being on stage? The opportunity – along with a fun learning experience – awaits each budding actor on the indoor stage at Billie Limacher Bicentennial Park, downtown Joliet. All levels of skill and interest are welcome to join the Saturday morning drama classes running January 19 - February 23. The 6-week session provides a wonderful introduction to theatre, as well as an expansion of theatre knowledge for those in 1st-12th grade. Some of the topics covered include: creative dramatics, improvisation, pantomime, script work, rhythm exercises, theatre techniques and terms, stage directions, enunciation and projection. In addition, students learn useful tools for public speaking, individual creativity, team work and listening skills. For the final class, students will present a skit to demonstrate what they learned. Director Lori Carmine — with her years of acting, technical and teaching experience — especially looks forward to bringing the student’s creative-side to life. Students in 1st-5th grade meet 9:00 a.m. - 10:15 p.m. ($55), and those in 6th-12th grade meet 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 noon ($60). Students may pre-register by calling 815-724-3760 to leave name, grade and contact phone number. Registrations forms and payment may be mailed in or brought to the first day of class, January 19. For mailing, please make checks payable to: Bicentennial Park, and mail to: 201 West Jefferson Street, Joliet 60432. Forms are available on line: www.bicentennialpark.org. Forms will also be available at the Park on the first day of class. Looking forward to a fun winter on stage with you!
