The Players

Children ages 7-9 continue their CTW experience in the Players Company. Players Company students attend one-hour, age-specific classes, on Saturday mornings for 10 weeks OR Tuesday nights for 8 weeks. All Players Company members are encouraged to audition for a role in that semester’s play, which is presented weeks after classes have concluded.

Theatre Classes for The Players Company

7-8 year olds

Introduction to theatre, using play and story drama to introduce character development. Students will begin to practice auditioning and basic theatrical terms. This class is for all 7 year olds, and 8 year olds who are new to CTW’s programs.

8-9 year olds

Slightly more advanced than the younger class, this class starts delving more seriously into character development using improvisational  activities. More advanced theatre terms and script work are introduced in this class as well. This class is for all 9 year olds, and 8 year olds who have previous experience in CTW’s programs.

About Rapunzel
By Karen Boettcher-Tate

(Spring 2020 play for Players Company)

Rene Shwartzbuckle is cuckoo for a turnip-like vegetable called rapunzel.  When she spots a mouth-watering patch of the plant in Witch Izwitch’s garden, she sends her husband Walt out to ’borrow’ some.  Witch Izwitch is certainly not amused!  With her diabolical henchmen, the Glumpwarts, she terrorizes Walt into promising her his firstborn child in exchange for his freedom.  We then jump ahead many years to Rapunzel (now you know where the name comes from!)  Shwartzbuckle’s 18th birthday.  The witch and the Glumpwarts show up as promised and whisk poor, innocent Rapunzel away to a tower in the forest.  From here, a boisterously entertaining rescue attempt begins!  (The technical aspects of ’hair climbing’ are handled quite simply.)  Can Prince Llewellyn persevere over the powers of evil?  Filled with plenty of action and fresh, hysterical characters (such as the sages Parsley, Rosemary and Thyme!), this show gives a new twist to an old story and a gentle message about the nature of beauty.
