Our summer youth workshops have begun. Penelope and Amanda are teaching three courses this week and then Penelope has another one next week (July 21-25). There is still room in next week’s class for kids in grades 5-8. Contact the box office at 378-3210 or www.sjctheatre.org.
The first day of this week’s Adventures in Theatre I class at the PARC included an exercise for the youngsters to practice an audition by reciting “One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish.” (That’s Penelope on the right demonstrating for the kids).
Amanda’s class for young teens on the Whittier stage started off with an icebreaker exercise where the kids had to move from their seats if they had something in common with the speaker (for instance, if shesaid “I have a sister”—then whoever else had a sister would get up and move around to find another seat. But like musical chairs, there would be one chair missing).
Both classes will have a performance for friends and family on Friday.
