The Blackbird Academy of Arts Theatre Department is designed to provide an introduction to the world of theatre and encourage students in the art of acting. Acting involves using one’s voice, body and emotions to express a character, telling a compelling and believable story. Not only is acting a fun form of creative expression, it is also a powerful communication tool.
Our performance-based courses offer the script to performance experience! With a strong emphasis on character development and the importance of working as the member of a creative team, students learn about rehearsal and production elements. They work on the script and/or vocal score for a term which culminates in a public performance. They will also gain experience in preparing for auditions, the actual audition process, rehearsal and performance. Each fall we offer a 10 week Musical experience, with a 10 week Play in the spring.
Singing for the Stage
In this weekly class students will be coached in voice techniques as well as basic movement for use on the stage. Whether your singer is simply wanting to gain confidence for vocal performances or explore the world of musical theatre, this is a perfect opportunity!
