This course is designed for first timers, aged 5 – 9. The goal of the course is to acclimate young actors to performing in front of an audience. To accomplish this, we work at stretching the young actor’s ability to focus over an extended period of time. Pantomime and puppetry play a significant part in this. We also stress creative dramatics, poetry, and vocal technique. All of it coming under the heading of FUN. The class meets on Saturday mornings for a modest fee of $100. The class potentially will perform in the Rebeca Sosa Theater on a weekday afternoon for the Senior Center Adults and family and friends. We can accommodate children younger than five, but they must be accompanied by a parent during class. CLASS SIZE WILL BE LIMITED, BASED ON CDC GUIDELINES.

ACTING FOR THE STAGE

Registration Fee: $100
Registration Dates: Saturday, January 9 and 16, at 9am

This course is the main stage acting class that mounts the Pelican Playhouse productions. It is the hallmark of the Pelican Playhouse that we present our family oriented productions using both adults and children on stage together. Very often, parents and their children appear together in the same production. We have always believed that real growth in acting only occurs during a live performance. We start with the basics, work on vocal technique, stage presence, and improvisation. Once the actors are settled in, a production is selected that would best suit the company. The play is cast and the remainder of the weeks are spent in rehearsal. The class culminates with performances in the Rebeca Sosa Theater. The class meets on Saturdays for a modest fee of $100. CLASS SIZE WILL BE LIMITED, BASED ON CDC GUIDELINES.

AUDITIONS

Our playhouse is unique in that we hold classes instead of auditions for our main stage productions during the year. We are a teaching theater and invite everyone to participate, no matter their background in acting. On rare occasions we will select a play and “cast” accordingly, but the majority of our main stage productions are performed from our Acting for the Stage Class.

ZOOM/VIRTUAL CLASSES

To accommodate those who might not be ready for in-person performances, we will also be holding ZOOM classes and will perform on the platform: On the Stage. Once people have signed up for the ZOOM classes, we will decide on the performance pieces and the dates.
