APAC Theatre Classes Resume
Aloha Performing Arts Company will resume its roster of classes for all ages beginning January 16. Artistic director Jerry Tracy's "Tuesday Troupers" is an 8 week class for 8 through 12 year old youngsters who can read. It begins Tuesday January 16 and meets from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. each Tuesday through March 6. Tuition is $80. The Troupers will focus on performance skills such as projection, articulation, and characterization, with some improvisation experimentation also included. Tracy is assisted by Kira Kane, who will teach a short choreography routine to be part of the performance which will be offered free to the public on the last class day.
On Wednesdays, Jaquelynn Collier will lead "The Little Theatre Club" for kids between the ages of 4 and 7. The Club will meet from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. each Wednesday for six weeks, from January 17 through February 22. Ms. Collier will focus on helping club members increase self confidence and develop basic social and performance skills. Tuition is $60.
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 will run from January 18 through March 8. Tuition is $80.
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 until 7:00 p.m. in Damron Hall, APAC's alternate space, in the building adjacent to the Aloha Theatre parking lot.
