Creative Kids & Young Actor Training Programs: Register Today!;

Education/Lectures

Playhouse on Park, 244 Park Road, West Hartford, CT , 06119

This summer, introduce your budding young actor to theater through creative play and interactive fun at Playhouse on Park! Registration for both Creative Kids and Young Actors Classes is now open. Creative Kids, open to children entering kindergarten through second grade, teaches students the basics of acting. The class runs in two sessions: session one starts June 27 through July 8, and session two starts July 25 through August 5. Young Actors is open to children grades three to five, running from June 27-July 8.


Creative Kids will use exercises and games to focus on acting through story telling, creating a character, expressing a feeling, music, and movement. A craft and story are often included. By the end of the class, students will know how to use their bodies and voices to create characters.

Young Actors students will participate in acting exercises and script work to allow them to increase their comfort and technique in portraying a character. Topics will include story telling, using the voice and body onstage, ensemble work, expressing an emotion, and techniques for presenting scenes and monologues.

Though the emphasis of both classes will be on developing skills and not on a final performance, family and friends are invited to the last class to see students present scenes.

Kathleen Doherty, Education Associate at Playhouse on Park, leads these interactive classes. Kathleen has previously worked as a Theatre Camp Coordinator for the YMCA in her home state of Massachusetts and is very passionate about introducing the world of theatre to children and young adults.
