Theater classes set for young people

Creative dramatics classes for students in grades 1-6 are offered on four Saturdays, April 5-26, at The Phipps Center for the Arts. Parents are invited to observe the final session.

  • From 10-11 a.m. is Beginning Creative Dramatics, for grades 1-3. Students will explore theater through games and activities. The fee is $37.
  • From 11:15 a.m.-12:45 p.m. is Exploring the Actor Within, for grades 4-6. According to instructor Andrea Wheeler, "We will work with 'the magic if' in this class. 'What would I do if I were this character?' We will explore the process from thought to speech and bodily action. We will also seek to understand the role of the character through improvisation, games, and activities. We will also discuss auditions and what a director looks for in an actor." The fee is $49.

    Wheeler received her bachelor's degree in theater from Moorhead State University. She has taught classes and directed plays for Minnesota School District 833, the Woodbury Community Theatre, K&S Conservatory of Music and The Phipps.
