Here at Lyric Arts we like to think of you as family but we have wondered how we can best serve your entire family at once! We welcome you to join us this fall as we launch our Family Master Classes, a series of one night workshops created for you, your spouse, and everyone in your household. Taught by a professional, you’ll get insight into theater making and also have an inside glimpse into what goes on here at the theater. One price is enough for the entire family so enroll for any sessions you want or select all four for the best deal and have your family spend the fall with us.

Each Master Class is from 4:45pm to 6:45pm


Thursday, November 2: Improvised Play

When was the last time your family was able to get together for a little silly and fun playtime? You and your family will play together to create some original fun scenes and characters using original ideas and Lyric Arts costumes and props. In theater it’s always okay to be a kid, whether or not they’re with you on this night.

Thursday, November 9: Directing Play

You and your family will have the opportunity to create a short story using very little dialogue. Given some tips and tricks about play directing you’ll get a chance to craft and stage your own scene…and then maybe give the reins over to the children!

Thursday, November 16: Magic behind the Play

Just before the preview performance for A Coney Island Christmas you and your family will get a first glimpse of the sets and costumes before a live audience does! Get a chance to meet the magic makers behind our holiday show and then stick around and see the performance for free!

Thursday, November 30: Auditioning for the Play

A little less than a week before Lyric Arts holds auditions for its spring show, A Wrinkle in Time, come to this workshop and get some insight and feedback on auditioning and what to expect for the next week’s auditions. A great night for actors of any age and especially for parents who would like some coaching tips for their young actors.

COST: $30 per family for each class or $100 for all four

PLEASE NOTE: The Family Master Class is not eligible for Early Bird registration.
