Richland Academy’s Little Black Box Theatre Company

  PURPOSE & OBJECTIVES:

Creative Drama is a process that develops imaginative thought and creative expression in children.  Through the use of movement, pantomime, improvisation, story dramatization and group activities, children will gain language and communication skills, social awareness, problem-solving abilities, self-concept development, and an understanding of theatre.  

Rather than an attempt to create professional child actors, the goal of our program is designed to guide a child to self-fulfillment through the process of theatre techniques.

We will introduce theatre through creative dramatics by creating an environment where youngsters can feel comfortable to work creatively and think critically.  Students will be able to apply techniques learned into their own creative expression as thinking, feeling, and creative human beings.

Perfect for the beginning actor!

At the end of the class we will put it all together in our songs and scenes production of We Are Monsters.

We Are Monsters is a hilarious new musical that follows human kids into a monster cabaret filled with quirky monster characters. The adventurous humans uncover vegetarian vampires and rock n’ roll werewolves, gradually realizing there may be more to these monsters than meets the eye! Most importantly these monsters and kids discover the importance of friendship and celebrating in the attributes that make each of us different and unique.
