Spread your performing wings! Our Big Kids classes focus on building a strong foundation for young people in the many aspects of theater and performance. We use games and playful exercises to encourage creativity, build confidence, and foster ways to work together as a group. PLAYmaking workshops also provide students with experience in creating, rehearsing and performing for an audience. Skills & Craft workshops dig deeper into developing specific artistic skills such as developing a character, playwriting, technical theater and design, and more. Triple Threat workshops provide training in the three skills that make a successful musical theater actor: singing, dancing, and acting. 

Big Kids will learn playful new ways to channel their creativity, express themselves artistically, and all levels of experience welcome!

Acting Out 1

Comedy Acting: Adventures of Captain Underpants

This long running series is full of humor and is perfect for young students who are reluctant readers that’d rather be playing outside. Why not get the best of both worlds in our fall acting workshop? Learning basics about comedy and using fast-paced action scenes, it's for kids who love a good practical joke and won't stop telling knock-knock jokes. Acting Out 1 is designed for young students that love to tell stories and helps teach them the basic skills to be successful telling those stories on the stage.

Saturdays, SEPT 9-OCT 14 from 9 am-10:30 am



Musical Theater 1

Disney Extravaganza

Over the decades Disney has not only created dozens of characters that are strong role models, like Moana, Aladdin, Elsa, and Simba, but they’ve left even more songs sung by these characters that are enjoyed by all families. Here at Lyric Arts we love Disney and so we invite you to join us in this 12-week musical theater workshop where students will take classes in singing techniques, dance, acting, while we help them find their favorite Prince or Princess character they’d like to play. The final presentation of this workshop will include acting scenes, individual songs or duets, and group singing and dancing numbers. The Musical Theater 1 series is for students new to musical theater and for those that have taken a few workshops at Lyric Arts and would like grow and challenge themselves.

Tuesdays, SEPT 19-DEC 12 (No Class OCT 31) from 4:45 pm-6:15 pm

COST: $195
