Fun with Drama
Join Leslie Kelley, Artistic Director for the Roswell Youth Theatre, to learn drama and improvisation skills that will boost self-confidence, build skills for public speaking and interviewing in a variety of settings. Improv is the form of theatre, often comedy, in which most or all of what is performed is unplanned and created spontaneously by the performers. This is a great opportunity for students to learn about acting through improv games, while having fun with their peers. The main idea is to build self -esteem and confidence by using these skills and performing in “real life” situations. This is a highly engaging workshop for children, tweens and teens!
Children ages 7+ may be dropped off for this session. Younger children are welcome if accompanied by an adult or mature teen.
