Education Happenings: Petite Players

This weekend begins the new season of Arts Academy classes. Petite Players, directed by Theatre Educator Leigh Anne Chambers, will be an exploration of melodrama. Participants will learn about the history of melodrama, then write and star in their own performance!

From silent movies to Dudley Do-Right, freedictionary.com defines melodrama as “a drama, such as a play, film, or television program, characterized by exaggerated emotions, stereotypical characters, and interpersonal conflicts.” This class will be loads of fun, perfect for the budding performers in your life.

There’s still time to register by calling 255-1450.

The class is for 6 – 11 year olds and will be held each Saturday, Sept. 10 – Oct. 1, from 9 am – 12 pm, at the Dixie Center for the Arts. The fee is $40 for NCLAC members, $60 for non-members.
