In Kids Company, students will learn theatre vocabulary and build foundational skills in the actor’s toolbox of body, voice, and imagination. Emphasis is placed on working as a team, developing expressive communication skills, and learning how to commit to imagined circumstances. Working with a script, the class will culminate in a full-scale production with a professional set, costumes, and lighting.
During rehearsal, students will rehearse their parts and receive individual coaching, play ensemble games to build their teamwork as a class, and develop their expressive theatre skills through drama games and exercises. In addition, through participating in musical theatre processes, students will further develop their “triple threat” skills of singing, acting, and dancing.
This summer, our Kids Company presents Willow Wood: A New Musical for Young Actors!
Five friends and superfans of the book series Willow Wood, by fantasy author Cressida Crow, find themselves traveling to the world they always thought was fictional. During the midnight release party for the final book in the series, Cressida Crow announces that she was unable to finish the highly anticipated installment. Fans worldwide are disappointed and angered by her writer’s block, but the five friends believe there is more to the story. They find themselves inside the adventure they always dreamed of when they travel to Willow Wood to help Cressida finish the story and return home. Willow Wood is a story of friendship, fandom, and finding the story within ourselves.
