Student Acting Workshops at Wheaton Drama

Monday, August 15th, 2016
Kindergarten Through Eighth-Grade Classes

A fun experience for all!

Young performers will learn basic onstage and acting techniques while they develop their imagination and creativity. All children will have a blast as they explore acting through a series of theater and improvisational games.

This ensemble-building class will foster each student’s self-esteem and help him/her become an independent thinker both on and off the stage. This year our fall class will be a steppingstone to a more in-depth winter class and a final production at the end of the winter session.

Six-week sessions will be offered this fall at Wheaton Drama.

Fall 2016 session: Sept. 13 – Oct. 18  (Note: Classes are subject to change based on enrollment.)

All sessions will be on Tuesday afternoons at these times:
Grades K – 4: From 4 p.m. until 4:55 p.m.
Grades 5 – 8: From 5 p.m. until 5:55 p.m.

Cost: $100 per session per child (You can sign up here.)

This fall’s class will be taught by Mackenzie Grattan. Mackenzie is a veteran teacher of the Wheaton Drama Summer Workshop for the past several summers. We are excited to welcome Mackenzie to this new venture at WDI.

Contact Elyse Wadzinski for more information at wdieducation@wheatondrama.org or call 630.260.1820 and leave a message about registration.
