Winter Classes for Kids at NCTC

Enrollment Opened for Winter Classes at NCTC!

This winter, the Newington Children’s Theatre Company is offering two classes for kids, ages 5-12. Explore-A-Story offers a playful introduction to performing utilizing E.B. White’s Charlotte’s Web, for kids ages 5-7. Throughout this four-week class, we will retell this beloved story in our own words, while becoming more familiar with the stage. Children will have the opportunity to express themselves, build confidence, explore their imagination and develop basic social skills and teamwork, all the while preparing for a showcase for friends and family at the conclusion of the program. Classes will be held on Tuesdays, January 10, 17, 24 and 31 from 4:30-5:30pm. Cost: $40.

For kids, ages 8-12, we have Create-A-Play held on Tuesdays, January 10, 17, 24 and 31 from 6:00-7:30pm. Throughout this four-week class, kids will learn how to craft their own short play from their imaginations and learn how to bring it to life on the stage. Participants will have the opportunity to develop active listening skills, hone problem solving skills, refine motor skills and build teamwork. At the conclusion of class, kids will have the opportunity to showcase their work for friends and family. Cost: $50.

Both classes will be held at the NCTC Performing Arts Theatre located at 743 North Mountain Road in Newington. Showcase Shareday for both classes is on Friday, February 3, 2012 at 7:00pm.
