Performing Arts Programs for 8 to 12 year olds

These 9 week programs are offered seasonally in the winter, spring and fall.
Please note that our programs have been altered slightly to accommodate the virtual format for the spring 2020 session. Typically each of our sessions will end in a production on the final day of classes, but due to the current health and safety restrictions in place, we can not guarantee a final performance at this time. If we are able to switch to an in-class format before the end of the session, we will look to do a showcase for parents in the final class if we are able. We thank you for your patience and understanding.  

CCTC Improv Club

Laugh, chuckle, giggle and holler! 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. No experience is necessary, however we do suggest you bring your sense of humour!
