Multi-Session Option for Grades 3 and up (pre-requisite: Physical Theatre)
Applied Theater is a theatrical form that uses live action to promote social change. The type we explore in this class calls for the audience to take part in the work onstage and actively participate in making the changes they want to see happen in the scene. This in turn empowers children to analyze and transform negative situations into positive. *To sign up for this Applied Theater class, children must complete a Physical Theater class where they first learn fundamentals.
