Performing Arts Programs for 8 to 12 year olds
These 9 week programs are offered seasonally in the Winter, Spring and Fall. Each session ends in a production on the final day of classes* and children can register over multiple sessions without repeating the same performance. Costumes and all materials are included.
*Please note that we continue to monitor the guidelines and recommendations put forward by the local public health department. At this time, and until further notice, we are planning to record the performers' final production and premiere it for them at their final class. This will be shared with family members in digital format at the end of the program.
CCTC Improv Club
Chuckling, chortling, giggling, laughter and hollering! These are all sounds you'll hear coming from the CCTC Improv Club, a 60 minute weekly program led by theatre and teaching professionals. Participants will play fun improv games to help access their creativity, boost self-confidence and develop spontaneity and playfulness. They will explore how to create a wide variety of characters, big and small, and learn the beginning fundamentals of writing their own sketches and performing a monologue. The CCTC Improv Club will have the opportunity to display their talents on the final class with a culminating and interactive showcase. No experience is necessary, however we do suggest you bring your sense of humour!
