If your child is interested in acting, what better place to learn than in a state, regional, and national award-winning theatre that’s close to home? The ACT Kids Company, a twice a year educational program for children in grades K-12, will be returning to Artists Collaborative Theatre on January 18th for the spring semester! Participation in our children’s troupe is not only educational, and not only fun, but it is also FREE!
ACT offers a free afterschool theatre program that uses stage productions as the vehicle to enhance our youth’s appreciation of the arts. This troupe of young performers will learn to develop their own imaginations and intuitions using body, voice and mind. In addition to acting skills, members of our children’s company gain self-esteem, self-confidence, creativity, critical thinking skills, social skills, and develop local pride and a deeper caring for others. The best feature of participating in the Kids Company is a full-length production that allows area schools, parents, family members, and the public to witness their progression while giving the children a chance to showcase their new skills!
This season, the children’s company spring production is Shrek the Musical Jr.! The children will perform at ACT March 30th - April 9th on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:30 pm and Sundays at 3 pm. The CTC will also take to the road, traveling to area schools to perform during the first week following our in-house productions. Rehearsals/classes for this semester's production begin on Wednesday, January 18th at 4 pm. Limited transportation from some pike county schools is available on a first come, first served basis, so "ACT" fast!
If your child is interested in joining the company, or if you would like more information, please contact Kristy Porter at (606) 432-2534 or send us a message on Facebook!
