Tales Around the Mediterranean
A two-week performance workshop
For kids entering 3rd – 12th grade
July 22-August 2, 2019
Back by popular demand, the second annual children’s theater workshop will be filled with fun, challenge and rewards for participating students. This year’s original script by Julie Fiedler, features a variety of wacky characters derived from folktales from Spain, Portugal and Turkey.
Under careful direction students will build their acting skills by participating in daily theater games and exercises specific to the stories involved. Throughout the two weeks, they will learn to use voice, body language, improvisation and mime skills to develop each character. There are rich and complex roles for the experienced students and delightful roles for the beginner.
Everyone gets a speaking part and rehearsals build on critical thinking and cooperative problem solving, as characters develop and actors form friendships. Students will also be involved in negotiating props and creating set pieces. The workshop culminates in a polished performance on stage at The Lincoln City Cultural Center, guaranteed to delight audiences of all ages.
