Richland Academyâ€™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.

Mondays 4:30-5:30 pm
Weeks of September 10-November 12, 2018 (10 weeks)
This program is designed to help younger actors practice valuable theatre skills. Perfect for the beginning actor! Each week we will do activities that help students learn to be responsible actors. We will also learn skills such as: how to use our voices, explore movement, and use our imaginations! Students will work on creating an ensemble, understanding movement and space, character development, utilizing voice, listening/reacting, and stage directions and blocking. At the end of the class we will put it all together in our songs and scenes production.
