The Homer Council on the Arts and Pier One Theatre are collaborating to hold after-school youth theatre training courses this school season.
A 12-week program called “TheatreShakes” will start September 7, with instruction being held Wednesdays at Homer Council on the Arts. The goal of this program is to develop basic theatre skills and perform a short version of William Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” with Brenda Dolma directing. No experience is required and any experience level is welcomed, according to a press release. The focus is on middle school age students but any interested child may register. A minimum of 12 students is required for TheatreShakes.
They are also offering ArtQuest starting October 4 at the Boys and Girls Club and October 6 at HCOA Tuesdays and Thursdays 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.
Then in the spring, a Musical Theatre Program is offered, expanding the course to include that genre. “Annie” will be performed by participants in this course.
All sessions will be held at Homer Council on the Arts Wednesdays from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Theatre Shakes runs through November 19 and Musical Theatre runs February 1 through May 2012.
Cost for each is $150 but if both are booked by September 7 the price is $200 for the two courses.
