APAC RESUMES THEATER ARTS CLASSES IN NEW YEAR
Aloha Performing Arts Company will resume its roster of theater classes for all ages beginning the second week in the new year. Jerry Tracy's "Tuesday Troupers" class for 8 through 12 year olds will strike up again, slightly expanded, on Tuesday afternoons, January 10 through February 28, from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. This is an eight week course and the tuition is $80. The Troupers will focus on performance skills such as projection, articulation, and characterization. Tracy is assisted by Riley Newton, and the theme this session is the weather! A parent or responsible family representative must attend a brief meeting at 3:30 p.m. on January 10, immediately before the first class officially begins.
Felicity Johnson will continue her popular "Intergenerational Acting" class on Thursdays from 2 until 4 p.m. This class is open to people of all ages, and has expanded to eight weeks, running January 12 through March 2. Tuition is $80.
Nicole Gour will once again lead a six-week class for youngsters between the ages of 4 and 7 on Thursdays from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. She has given the class a new name for the new year: "The Little Theatre Club." The Club will focus on increasing self confidence and developing basic social and performance skills, and will meet from January 12 through February 16. Tuition is $60. A parent or responsible family representative must attend a brief meeting at 4:30 p.m. on Thursday January 12, immediately before the first class officially begins.
All of the above classes will be held at the historic Aloha Theatre in Kainaliu, and each will culminate in a free performance, open to the public, on the final class day. Online registration at AlohaTheatre.com is recommended. In addition, Engela Edwards continues as adviser of Aloha Teen Theatre, which meets Fridays from 4:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the APAC Loft, across the street and a half block south of Aloha Theatre, on the second floor of the building housing The King's Daughters Thrift Store. ATT is free and ongoing, and accepts new members between the ages of 13 and 18 at any time. For more information about any of these classes, call the APAC office at 322-9924.
