New Village Arts is pleased to continue its collaboration with Kids Act, a local youth acting program that has been teaching fun and exciting children’s theatre for over 12 years! Kids Act classes are more than fun, they help develop your child’s self-confidence and creativity. Each child is encouraged to step forward and shine in an atmosphere of respect and trust, provided by experienced, professional teachers.
“Our goal in Kids Act is to encourage our students to manifest their talents and abilities through the joy of creative expression.”
Kids Act! Going on Stage! (10-Week Sessions)
Put your child’s imagination into action in Kids Act, where they create their own characters and plays. In the end, at a professional theatre, students will perform their original plays, along with a short piece of Shakespearean verse, in front of scenery that they’ve created for family and friends.
