The Arcata Playhouse offers youth workshops during Spring school breaks and in the summer months.
Spring Break 2017 workshops include theater art classes, clowning for kids, mask making, creative movement, and vaudeville. For more information please visit Kids Theater Arts Week.
We offer two exciting workshops during the summer 2017: Pageant on the Plaza, July 10 – 22, and Summer Youth Workshops from July 24 – 28.
Pageant on the Plaza, is an exciting two-week adventure into outdoor performance and spectacle for kids ages 9 to 14. See the Pageant on the Plaza website. The two-week workshop begins with a week of skill building during which classes are presented in storytelling, character development, construction of large puppets, music, movement and stilt walking. The second week is dedicated to applying those freshly minted skills to building and rehearsing an original production to be performed at the end of a Saturdays' Farmers Market on July 22rd.
Summer Youth Workshops are a collection of fun theater classes for kids ages 6 to 9 and 10 to 14. Classes are held Monday through Friday and end with a final presentation on the last day. Classes offered are Clowning for Kids, Creative Drama, Advanced Character Acting and Theater Improvisation. For more information on the July 2017 workshops go to Summer Youth Workshops.
