Youth Theater classes at NCCCA

PLATTSBURGH — Theater for Youth program will be hosted by the The North Country Cultural Center for the Arts.
The two spring classes include: Intro to theater and Improvisation, and character development class called “What a Character!.” Classes are for students ages 5 to 12. Classes begin on April 20 and run through May 4. The classes will be taught by Deb Vanneman.
The intro course for ages 5 to 8 teaches students to develop stage skills through improv exercises and theater games. Students will learn about stage movement, give and take between actors, visual and vocal storytelling, and creative focus in this beginner-level class. The class will be held from 10 a.m.to noon.
In “What a Character!,” children ages 9 to 12 learn to interpret scripts, experiment with body lead and different voices, explore a character’s history and point of view, and create a believable and interesting persona on stage. The class will run from 1 to 3 p.m.
The cost of the program is $95 or $85 for Arts Center members. For more information or to register, call the Arts Center at 563-1604.
