FALL 2018 Programming
Through artistic training and performance opportunities, The Young Company at Greater Boston Stage Company develops life skills such as confidence, self-discipline, and collaboration to inspire and prepare young actors for future creative engagement and success.
Each fall we offer a variety of programs designed for students to have fun as they grow as artists and people in a supportive and creative environment.
Acting Classes and Private Voice Lessons develop confidence, empathy, ownership and agency through performing in process-oriented environments. For our Act 2 and 3 students, our focus turns towards the ‘Good People’ aspect of our motto as we work to develop strong artistic skills as well as artistic appreciation and understanding with our new programs: The Theatre Club and The 24 Hour Musical!
Our goal is to prepare you for your next theatrical adventure, as well as for all future life endeavors all while having fun!
Registration is now open. Everything is first come, first serve! We hope to see you soon.
FALL 2018 Programing
Overture Acting Class (for students in grades 1-3)
Mondays: 3:30 to 4:45
Travel under the sea and discover the lost city of Atlantis! This fall, students in grades 1-3 will sing, act, and dance their way through the ocean with mermaids, sharks, and many other mysteries of the deep. Our interdisciplinary Overture classes introduce our youngest students to theatre in a supportive, playful, and imaignative environment. Under the guidance of a lead teacher, students sing, dance, act, and craft- all of which culminates in a sharing session for family and friends. This class is perfect for both newcomers and students looking to build off their previous experiences!
Act 1 Acting Class (for students in grades 4-6)
Act 1: Make ‘Em Laugh!
Mondays: 3:30 to 4:45
Comedy Comes in threes….but why? What does it mean to be funny? How do you make an audience laugh? Through variations in physicality and voice, this class will look at comedic scenes, monologues, and stand-up jokes to explore how we make an audience laugh. This class is perfect for both first time students and returning students looking to further expand their theatrical tool box.
The Theatre Club (for students in grades 9-12, others may contact Education Department).
The Young Company is proud to announce The Theatre Club!
There is so much amazing professional Theatre featuring local artists to see in Boston and the Greater Boston Area.
Members of The Theatre Club will go on a fall adventure to see 6 productions playing in the Boston area. After each production, staff and students will discuss the design elements, directorial and acting choices, casting, why the piece is performed, and its potential impact on the larger community.
The Theatre Club is perfect for actors, designers, directors, stage managers, and theatre lovers of any level.
Tuition includes tickets to all 6 productions. For performances at Greater Boston Stage, the club will meet at the theatre. For all other performances, the club will meet at Oak Grove Train Station and travel together into the city guided by a staff member.
