Upstage Arts Academy
Upstage Arts Academy is an exciting new school offering classes in performing and fine arts. In a collaboration with The Town Players of New Canaan, this summer, they will offer two performance-based workshops for students 8-13 years old.
Students will gain speech and language skills as well as developing knowledge of various aspects of theatrical performance and design. Students will strengthen their creative muscles, develop their writing skills, and develop confidence in performing for an audience. They will learn improv skills and have lots of fun!
The first workshop will be held from June 27th-July 1st from 9am to noon at The Powerhouse Theatre in Waveny Park. In this character building workshop, drama, creativity, and collaboration collide. Students will develop a character, write a monologue, create character scenes, and write a collaborative script for a final performance. Students will also design and build their own prop to use in their final performance.
The second workshop will be held from August 15th to August 19th from 9am-noon at The Powerhouse Theatre in Waveny Park. In this ‘Little Miss Bossy’ workshop, students will take on the role of actors and stage crew to bring a light-hearted story to life. Students will collaborate to build props and costumes to use in their final performance.
Upstage Arts Academy and The Town Players of New Canaan continue to follow CDC and Connecticut guidelines regarding Covid-19 to keep students and instructors safe.
