Summer Program to Teach Children Theater
The Occidental College Children’s Theater is inviting applications for its Summer Institute of Fun, weeklong workshops in July and August that will teach children techniques in physical theater, group improvisation, and tumbling and movement.
Participants must be between 8 and 13 years old. Enrollment is limited (the student-to-teacher ratio is 8-to-1), so interested parents should sign up as soon as possible.
Children’s Theater actors will offer individual attention in a positive and fun learning environment. All children will receive a T-shirt, and each week concludes with an informal folktale performance.
Sessions, which will cover different material each week, are scheduled for 1-4 p.m. Monday through Friday in Occidental’s Keck Theater. There will be supervised free time from 4 to 5:15 p.m., during which parents may pick up their children. The schedule is as follows:
Session 1: July 24-28
Session 2: July 31-Aug. 4
Session 3: Aug. 7-11
Session 4: Aug. 14-18
Session 5: Aug. 21-25
Fees, which include discounts for enrolling in more than one session, are as follows:
$160 for one session
$300 for two sessions (includes $20 discount)
$440 for three sessions (includes $40 discount)
$560 for four sessions (includes $80 discount)
$680 for five sessions (includes 120 discount)
(There is a 10 percent discount for each additional sibling.)
