Education - Classes

A Note from the Directors of Children's Programming

Dear Parents and Guardians,

This year we are working hard to challenge each of our students individually and as an ensemble. Their are many different skill sets to be learned as an actor and LTW has created classes that will help your students advance to each new level. In order to achieve this goal we find that it's important to have each student in the proper grade level to learn and be challenged most efficiently. Below you will find our registration listings. Please look at the grade levels closely as they have changed from previous sessions. If you have any questions please contact Amanda Gremel or Stephen Frankenfield.

Thank you!

Designed to engage your student in a more professional style production, this class challenges students to take a close look on how to develop a character throughout the rehearsal process. We teach students how to “rip” apart their scripts inside and out, fully commit to a character from beginning to end, and learn the importance of working as an ensemble to create and produce their own show. This class is a full semester and will be given two performances open for the public to purchase tickets.

How to think on your feet, embrace the importance of saying “yes, and” on the stage, and of course tap into the funny side of you!

Summer Camps 2016

 

Download the paper registration form or select the Register button below next to the class you want.

Send form to 5317 E. Speedway Blvd, Tucson, AZ 85712 or call the Education Office at (520) 327-0160.

 

Live Theatre Workshop's summer camps are a one week music, theatre, dancing, and technical theatre experience. Everyday students will work with a choreographer on two to three dance numbers, a vocal coach on musical theatre style singing, and with professional teaching artists who will lead them through the process of producing a play. All students will be assigned a role and will learn acting technique and theatre skills through the process of rehearsing their character for a final performance of their play and musical numbers. Camps are arranged by age and grade level-all skill levels are welcome. All of our instructors are trained to introduce and teach in a way that makes the entire experience fun and educational in a safe and low-pressure environment. While students will be very busy learning lines, acting, singing, dancing, building sets, and producing their play; there is plenty of time for acting improvisation and theatre games. Our goal here at LTW is to focus on the process of the putting together a production. We feel all students should understand what it takes to put on a show from start to finish with a focus on teamwork, personal responsibility, friendships, and thinking outside of the box
