In this one hour workshop, students will participate in theatre exercises designed to engage the tools every actor needs: body, voice, and imagination. Warm up exercises invite students to explore characterization through movement and vocal expression, working together as an ensemble, and stretch the imagination. Students then activate a story by embodying the characters, interacting with one another, and the facilitator within the imagined world of the story. Specific story requests may be submitted at the time of booking.
Now in its 30th year, Raleigh Little Theatre's education program provides young people ages 2-18 in theartical and personal development. All of the teachers representing RLT have at least a BA degree in Theatre and/or at least 20 years experience teaching theatre classes. Raleigh Little Theatre is dedicated to the belief that theatre training promotes self esteem, builds confidence, stimulates creativity, sharpens communication skills, fosters an appreciation of community, raises cultural awareness, celebrates diversity, encourages respect for self and others, and lays a foundation for a lifelong love of the arts. The study of theatre not only trains students to be better actors, it inspires them to be better people.
