Virtual Script Building and Performance Class with Stefanie Anarumo
July 6-10, 2020 at 10:00 am
Have you ever wanted to travel on a rocket ship to outer space? What about ride an elephant through the jungle? Or dive deep down into the ocean and explore some underwater caves? Over the course of a week, students will collaborate and choose their own adventure while learning the basics of theater performance. Students will work together on Zoom to write, design, and perform an original script inspired by one of three themes: an outer space adventure, a jungle safari adventure, or an underwater adventure. This class is designed for artists 9-12 years old who are ready to create, imagine, and collaborate! Miss Stefanie is a recent graduate of the Harvard Graduate School of Education where she holds a Master’s in Arts in Education. She is a professional actor, director, educator, and Fulbright Research Scholar.
