Technical Theatre and Design
When: Thursdays at Vinson-Owen January 9- March 5 2:30 - 4
Who: Students in Grades 4 - 5
Beginning in January, students in grades 4 and 5 can join Miss Bond, Mr. Clapp, and Ms. Jackson as behind-the-scenes members of the V-O Drama Club production of Disney Frozen KIDS. We'll be creating set, prop, and costume elements that will be used in the Drama Club's March production. Students will experience first-hand the collaborative behind-the-scenes creative process that is part of a successful theatre production. Participants will be credited in the show program. This program is open to all 4th and 5th grade students, both Drama Club members and those looking to only participate behind-the-scenes. Please note that the products created in this workshop will be used entirely in the production.
A limited number of 5th grade students from the Tech Theater class will also be able to register in March for Backstage Crew class for an additional fee. Backstage Crew members will participate during all hours of Production Week and the performances.
