Early Stages: 5-6 Year Olds, Fall Semester

5-6 year olds

Introduction to theatre, using play and story drama to introduce character development. Students will begin to practice auditioning and basic theatrical terms with CTW Teacher and Early Stages Director, Haven Bradam.

Students ages 5-6 in the Early Stages Company students attend one-hour classes on Saturday mornings for 8 weeks.

Fall 2018 Early Stages Performance

The 5-6 year old Early Stages performers will rehearse 10-15 minute plays, which will both encourage reading and accommodate for students who are very early in their reading skills. These plays will be selected once the class roster is set, to better ensure the students are set up to succeed. Each child will do an audition in their class, and the teacher will assign roles to each child.

Rehearsals will begin shortly after Labor Day, and will meet once or twice a week from 6-7 pm. The actual calendar will depend on the students’ availability.

The Early Stages students will perform their 10-15 minute plays on October 6, 2018, at 1:00 pm, in the Tansey-Zimmerman Theatre at CTW. This will be a free and public performance, with costumes and sets.

**Registration for Fall 2018 is open**
