(The smell of the greasepaint, the roar of the crowd!)

For students in grades 7–10 during the 2016-2017 school year

Drawing of actor pointing at a stageJune 18 - 29

Do you have what it takes to get the part? This fun and experiential class will explore theater arts and acting through creative expression, innovative movement, audience experience, and performance. Learn what it takes for a student with a visual impairment to audition for a school play and get cast!

Students will develop confidence and comfort in performing in front of a crowd, meet local teen actors, meet award winning local actors, and experience “the smell of the greasepaint, the roar of the crowd” (the feeling of excitement actors get on stage). Students may also try out a variety of theatrical activities such as puppetry, choreographed movement (body language), and stage combat. 

This class is taught by teachers who not only work with visually impaired students, but are also award winning performers in the Austin community.
