Classes Resume at Aloha Theatre!
ALOHA THEATRE CLASSES RESUME
Aloha Theatre will resume its roster of classes for all ages beginning April 3. 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 April 3 and meets from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. each Tuesday through May 22. 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 once again 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 April 4 through May 9. 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 April 5 through May 24. 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, adviser of Aloha Teen Theatre, has announced a special session of ATT, focusing on music and movement, with guest instructors Jaquelynn Collier and Wendy Buzby. The teens meet Fridays from 4:30 until 6:30 p.m. in Damron Hall, the building adjacent to the Aloha Theatre parking lot. 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 Aloha Theatre office at 322-9924.
