These small-scale performance classes offer students an introduction to developing character and rehearsing a play one day a week for six weeks. A half hour performance on the final class period will be presented for friends and family. Focus is on actor training, not on spectacle. All students are guaranteed a role, but space is limited. There may be possibilities for learning basic Technical Theatre skills!

Here is another imaginative play from the author of the very popular Of Winners, Losers and Games. Queen Augustus the Anguished is a powerful, domineering person with the kind of voice that makes lions crawl back into their dens and thunder retreat into the clouds. Her son, King Nathan the Nervous, is a meek, mild little fellow who faints at any noise louder than the flutter of butterfly wings. This contrast of characters produces chuckling humor and titillating suspense. The possibilities for comedy are endless, and the author takes full advantage of them. The play’s a scream (literally) for children’s theatre or for performance by children. Nathan the Nervous is suitable for any age group. It can be performed by children or adults for audiences made up of children and/or adults. It has the qualities of a good contest play, and it is ideal for experimental theatre and workshops.
