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.

(Fall 2019 play for Players Company)
Narrated by a triumvirate of ringmasters and giddily guided by a threesome of circus clowns who also act as stagehands, Trio! races in just over 30 minutes through the triplicate tales, each twirled to provide three times the laughter and fun!
Opportunities for student actors to show off their circus-style talents offers chance to triple your production value by featuring hidden talents sure to excite eager audiences!

Cast B will likely rehearse 7:00-8:15 Mondays/Thursdays, and 2:30-3:45 pm on Saturdays. If your child has smaller part, you can expect 1-2 rehearsals a week; if they have a medium part, 2-3 rehearsals a week.
