In Partnership with the Family Resource Centre at Minnekhada Middle School
A Therapeutic Social Skills Program that uses Theatre Techniques to build confidence, work in groups, and respect and communicate with their peers. Theatre has many techniques and exercises to help bring confidence to the surface and make it grow. Once the students have found their voice, they will come together and collaborate to create sketch comedy completely written and performed with their groups.
Students will learn character, story telling and environment exercises that will help them discover what their comedy sketches will be about. We use character break down sheets so we can explore the way each character feels, looks, and interacts with other characters in each sketch. We also use scene break down sheets that help give a strong understanding of the beginning, middle and end to stories.
There is no other program like this being offered in the Tri-Cities!
