Virtual ProgramsFall 2020
Carousel Players is offering
We have decided that the best way to continue to provide you and your families with fun and effective Drama Education while keeping everyone safe is to go virtual! We are currently working on developing programs and will update this page regularly with our new programming that will bring drama to your home.
Drama Explorer Program for Ages 7-10
Tuesdays | Oct 20 – Nov 24 | 4-5 pm | $50
Every Tuesday from 4-5pm we will warm up our bodies and imaginations before diving into the themed drama adventure for the week. Join Nicola as she leads us through underwater explorations, jungle expeditions, outer space enterprises, and more! We will also open our weekly Surprise Supplies boxes and spend the last 15 minutes making our themed craft together.
Surprise Supplies boxes will be delivered to the participant’s home up to a week before the program starts. Inside will be a craft for each session. Campers will make crafts while also sharing with other campers online.
Welcome back to our After School Drama Program – online!
Musical Theatre Program for Ages 10-13
Wednesdays | Oct 21 – Nov 25 | 4-5:30 pm | $60
Join Elizabeth every Wednesday from 4-5:30pm for Musical Theatre technique instruction and drama games. We will warm up our bodies, voices, and imaginations before engaging our creative minds in drama activities and performance practice. We will spend the 6 weeks learning a group Musical Theatre song that each student will record themselves performing.
In addition to the group number, each student will record a song, dance, or monologue they will practice performing with their peers. At the end of the 6 weeks, campers will have the opportunity to share their performing talents! We will be editing all of the videos together to create the virtual final showcase.
Calling all adventurers and heroes!
Join us on October 3rd for a virtual session of Dungeons and Dragons! Kids from ages 10-14 will be transported to the fantastical land of Wellandale where they will form an adventure party and work together to defend good from evil. Our resident Dungeon Master and Artist Educator, Mike Metz, will run this unique 2 hour role-playing opportunity over Zoom from 2-4pm.
Registration also comes with a surprise supplies kit, which will include classic 20-sided D&D dice and a custom made character sheet!
There are only 6 spots available for this event, so act fast to register and play with friends. Adventure awaits!
