Players (Ages 7-9)

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 Boys Vs Girls: Armageddon
By Adam J. Goldberg

(Spring 2024 play for Players Company)

It’s war! Nobody’s quite sure how it started, but all the town’s girls and boys have split up along strict gender lines and are determined to crush the opposition utterly. As water balloons fly and rumors of cootie-laced biological weapons circulate, it’s up to best friends Terry and Samantha to break the gender barrier and avert mutual assured destruction.
