 Join us at Ennis Public Theatre for out K.I.D.S. Fall Theatre classes!

• You will learn the fundamentals of theater – stage parts, movement, voice and diction.

• You will gain confidence and overcome fear of public speaking, learn to think creatively, focus and strategically listen.

• You will learn about dedication through practice and delivering a final result, body language and teamwork, working together for a common goal.

• You will receive constructive feedback and learn that this is not a negative thing but helps build you.  

Classes Will Culminate into a Spring Showcase!

All of this learning is done in a fun and creative atmosphere that hardly feels like learning!

Classes begin in September and will run weekly through April. This is a full year of instruction with a break over Christmas. The first semester the children will be learning all about theory and technique. The second semester they will put into practice all that was learned as they rehearse for our spring K.I.D.S. production. There may be some additional practice time in the spring for the production if our director feels it is necessary. We will let the students know as we get closer to the production.
We will offer three different levels of instruction.

Grades: K - 3rd ($40/month) - Thursdays - 4:00-5:00
Grades: 4th - 6th ($45/month) - Tuesdays - 4:15-5:30 OR Thursdays 5:00-6:15
Grades: 7th & Up ($45/month) - Tuesdays - 5:30-6:45
