Not long after Seven Angels Theatre created the Youth Summer Theatre Program, it became clear that many of the students were not interested in waiting until the next summer to enjoy acting classes. They wanted to act, and they wanted to be with other youth who also wanted to act! In response, Seven Angels Theatre created an ongoing acting class during the school year, Young Angels.
Young Angels focuses primarily on acting, although a big musical number that winds up in the final presentation is always a hit. Every Monday night beginning in the middle of the fall, students divide up into two groups for an hour-and-a-half of acting and comradery. Games, skits, improvisations, scene-work and a musical number fill the time and, before you know it, it’s early spring. At the final presentation, the parents get to be entertained by their favorite performers in the whole world.
For students who find something extra in the world of theatre, it’s a wonderful experience they will always remember.
