ACT! is an exciting new artist-in-residence idea for schools of all sizes. This innovative program allows schools to offer their students a one of a kind theatre arts program for low or no cost to the school. Ashland artistic staff work with students each week at the school learning the songs, dances and lines for a full youth production. Learning the show is only part of the fun. Students will also learn performance fundamentals and team work with interactive theatre improvisational games.
During the last week of the program, the student's worlds open up as they take the rehearsal process to the Maplewood Community Center on stage in the Maplewood Performing Arts theatre. Students top off the experience by showcasing their hard work with several performances for their school, family, friends and community with professional sets, costumes, lights and sound! Your students will come away with improved poise, self-discipline and self-esteem - skills that will help them at school and last for a lifetime!
