Children ages 7-9 continue their CTW experience in the Players Company. Players Company students attend one-hour, age-specific classes, on Saturday mornings for 10 weeks OR Tuesday nights for 8 weeks. All Players Company members are encouraged to audition for a role in that semester’s play, which is presented weeks after classes have concluded.
Theatre Classes for The Players Company
7-8 year olds
Introduction to theatre, using play and story drama to introduce character development. Students will begin to practice auditioning and basic theatrical terms. This class is for all 7 year olds, and 8 year olds who are new to CTW’s programs.
8-9 year olds
Slightly more advanced than the younger class, this class starts delving more seriously into character development using improvisational activities. More advanced theatre terms and script work are introduced in this class as well. This class is for all 9 year olds, and 8 year olds who have previous experience in CTW’s programs.
About Be Careful What You Wish For…
By Patrick Rainville Dorn
(Winter/Spring 2018 play for Players Company)
Receiving your heart’s desire can sometimes have unexpected, comical results! In this delightful collection of folk tales, four magical wish givers teach apprentices about instances of wishes gone amiss, where the recipients of the wishes ended up preferring things as they were before the wish was ever granted. Action-packed, classic tales from Russia, Japan, France, and Germany come to lighthearted life in this economical, easy-to-stage, tour-friendly ensemble show. A nearsighted gardener learns that some things are best not seen too clearly. A hard-headed stonecutter aspires to become the most powerful thing in the world and learns about power in the process. A house-hungry fisherman’s wife allows her greed to push upward mobility a bit too far, and a sausage-savoring woodcutter’s wife nearly cuts off her husband’s nose to spite his face. (Description taken from Pioneer Drama)
