6th-12th Grade

Speak the speech! The instructor will lead the beginner class in the basics of Shakespeare text and history. Who was Shakespeare? How do you speak his text? The instructor will help you find and understand a short monologue from one of Shakespeare’s many plays and will help you with the pronunciation and understanding its meaning. This is a great class for anyone new to Shakespeare or that may be interested in auditioning for a Shakespeare play.
Instructor: Samuel Eisenhuth


Ages 18-100
6-7pm Thursdays, March 9, 16, & 23

In this class designed for beginners, adults will learn basic acting techniques and have a great time doing so! There is nothing more fun than games. Theatre games are a great way to learn acting skills, including listening, reacting, emotions, characterization and thinking on your feet. This is an introductory class in acting for adults who have had little or no previous experience in theatre or for adults who may be interested in auditioning for a play someday. Instructor: Samuel Eisenhuth

Get inspired by the tales (with tails) of crazy critters from stories like Lyle Lyle Crocodile, Cat in The Hat, The Little Mermaid, and other friends. Students work together to act out new and familiar stories and enjoy games and projects to support their animal quest. Exploratory Creative Dramatics provide literature-based drama activities that promote literacy comprehension, confidence, collaboration, and creativity.
