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 The Entire American Revolution (In 40 Minutes Or Less!)
By Eddie McPherson
(Fall 2018 play for Players Company)
History has never been so fun… or so fast! Flying through the major points of America’s quest for independence, this fast-and-loose comedy plays like a highlight reel of history in hilarious fashion! Sorry, Hamilton’s busy in a different play, but your audience will both laugh and learn as they watch patriots such as George Washington, Paul Revere, Samuel and John Adams, Patrick Henry, and Benjamin Franklin battle the vain King George III and his British soldiers. From the Boston Tea Party to the Battle of Bunker Hill (Did you know it was really Breed Hill?!) to the crossing of the Delaware and onward to the British surrender at Yorktown, the historical meets the hysterical in this one-act delight!

Rehearsals for The Entire American Revolution…
Auditions are September 1 and 4, 2018. Rehearsals begin around September 10, 2018. We will likely have two casts. Cast A will likely rehearse 5:30-6:45 Mondays/Thursdays, and 1:00-2:15 on Saturdays. Cast B will likely rehearse 7:00-8:15 Mondays/Thursdays, and 2:30-3:45 pm on Saturdays. If your child has smaller part, you can expect 1-2 rehearsals a week; if they have a medium part, 2-3 rehearsals a week. If they have a large part, they should expect to attend all three rehearsals each week. The schedule will be finalized in early September and will be released with the cast list.
