Mask & Mirror Community Theatre is pleased to announce that this summer it will offer three 2-week half day theatre acting classes for ages 6-16. Classes will be limited to 12 students and this non-profit, all-volunteer theatre will only charge $100 per student, with a limited number of scholarships available. Additional details and enrollment instructions are available at www.maskandmirror.com/youth-
There will be three sessions available: June 18-29, 9 am-12 noon, for ages 6-11; June 18-29, 1-4 pm for beginners ages 12-16; and July 9-20, 1-4 pm for intermediate ages 12-16. All classes will be held at Brown’s Ferry Community Center, 5465 Nyberg Lane in Tualatin.
Classes will include exploration of pantomime, dramatic emotional states, vocal expressions, acting etiquette, improv and more. Each 2-week session will end with a performance for friends and family where students will showcase these new skills.
The classes will be taught by Gabrielle Juliette Widman, Theatre Arts Educator and native Oregonian. Gabrielle is a playwright of children’s theatre and a performer herself. She has extensive experience in planning, coordinating and teaching youth theatre and is eager to reach children who have limited or no exposure to theatre arts. She will be assisted in the classes by members of Mask & Mirror who also have backgrounds and experience in education for youth theatre.
Mask & Mirror Community Theatre is supported in these classes by the City of Tualatin Parks and Recreation and a PGE Arts Grant, and volunteer members of the theatre.
Mask & Mirror Community Theatre is now in its 7th season of presenting high quality and affordable (no tickets are more than $15) live theatre to the citizens of Tigard and Tualatin – using all-volunteer actors, stage crew and administrators.
Participation and membership is open to all. We welcome experienced performers and theatre “wannabes” – we’ll train you!
