Who are we?
At Civic Theatre Education (CTE) our theatre training program is all about process. Our goal is to foster a respect for collaboration and ensemble work as well as teach students skills they can take with them as they audition for productions here at SBCT, for their school productions, and beyond.
We strive to offer students a wide variety of courses designed to expose them to all aspects of theatrical production onstage and backstage, thereby enhancing their appreciation of the total collaborative experience.
Creative Dramatics: K - 3rd grade
Level 1 - K and 1st graders
Level 2 - 2nd and 3rd graders
Creative Drama offers our youngest students a chance to explore and express ideas and feelings though dramatic enactment. The children will experiment with movement, voice, and acting in guided activities and theatre games. They will dig into the elements of a story, have fun with improvisation, and learn how to be someone else! This process aids students in language development, communication skills, and creativity, as well as building self-esteem, empathy, and group co-operation. Creative Drama classes are designed for beginning and returning student and cover new material each session.
Intermediate Drama – 4th thru 6th grades
Intermediate Drama classes introduce and review theatrical techniques and terminology. Basic concepts are presented through the use of theatre games, exercises and improvisation. Students develop the skills and freedom necessary to react spontaneously and honestly moment to moment. These classes are where students expand their knowledge of acting skills, voice, movement for the stage, dance and characterization. They begin to work in depth with scripted scenes and monologues. The process of script analysis is introduced and students hone their skills as they approach material that makes increased demands on their physical, vocal, and imaginative resources!
Teen Conservatory Workshops - grades 7th thru 12th
Our Teen Conservatory workshop sessions offer students an opportunity to explore theatre and musical theatre though variety of choices each semester. These unique workshops are designed for students to find their own artistic voice in a collaborative and creative environment. Instructors help those new to the process become confident and stretch and challenge those who have been in theatre classes before.
