Theater classes for youths at the Playhouse


The Youngstown Playhouse youth theater will hold a winter session of classes for six consecutive Saturdays, Jan. 20-Feb. 24, for youngsters in preschool through grade 12.

“Silly Saturdays,” a class for children in preschool–kindergarten, will be offered. Taught by Joanna Andrei, the class will concentrate on creative movement, games and exercises, to allow even the youngest child to develop physical skills and imagination. Class time is 9-9:45 a.m.

Children in grades 1-3, may enroll in “Imagination Station,” a creative drama class, led by Andrei. The class will include theater games, stage skills, and creative movement, while working to develop imagination, self confidence and self-expression. Class time is 10-11 a.m.

Patricia Fagan will conduct the class “It Was a Dark and Stormy Night” for students in grades 4-6. The class teaches the basics of acting, through the use of classic theater games and improvisational exercises. Students will then use those skills in the creation, rehearsal and performance of their own mystery story. Class time is 10-11 a.m. The course stresses self esteem, critical thinking and working together.

“So, You Want to be an Actor” is a class designed for students in grades 7-12, and will be taught by Jeanine Rees. The class will include stage skills, auditioning techniques, beginning improvisation and scene work. Class time is 11a.m.-12:15 p.m. The course is aimed at both the beginning actor and those with some experience.

Classes will conclude with a performance on the last day for families and friends.

The cost is $75 per student, with discounts available for siblings. Some scholarship assistance is available for qualifying students. Enrollment is limited.
