What is this program? Your child will learn and grow throughout the week as an individual, valued part of a collaborative team. Compass Creative Dramatics residencies encourage students to have fun and explore the dramatic arts by participating in a full production of a classic children’s story. During their theatre residency, kids will be part of a collaborative artistic process that encourages teamwork — while still inspiring them to take ownership of and pride in their unique ideas and capabilities.
Theatre residencies are a great opportunity to make new friends. Students are grouped by age for the afternoon activities, allowing age-appropriate lesson planning. They are integrated during rehearsals, so your student will learn how to collaborate with students from first grade up through middle school students.
CCD encourages kids to expand their horizons by stretching their creativity muscles. Our programming encourages imagination and critical thinking, providing a safe environment in which kids can take healthy risks and explore their strengths and weaknesses. Throughout the week, our students learn about themselves and discover how to turn their limitations into assets.
CCD residencies are a great way to supplement previous and ongoing theatre experience, or to introduce students to theatre for the first time. Since the program is designed to be customized and flexible to a wide variety of ages, experience, and talents, we are able to adjust the teaching and guidance as well as the level of difficulty for each student, which means that whether your child is a veteran of the stage or a first-timer, we’ll be glad to help nurture them and challenge them to further growth.
Schedule: Each day, the tour actor/educators will rehearse with the students for three hours plus one 15-minute break.
Food: Please send along a packed dinner for your child to eat during the break. Also, make sure they have a snack after school.
On Monday, the directors meet all the children and cast them in their roles through a simple, no-pressure audition — no preparation necessary. After the audition, roles are announced, and rehearsal schedules are distributed.
On Tuesday through Thursday, all students are called for the entire rehearsal, including a fifteen-minute structured break.
On Friday, all students are called for a dress rehearsal during the same time.
Saturday is two performances of the show at 2:00 pm and 7:00 pm! Tickets will be available for $9.00
