YOH Junior Theatre presents The Lion King Jr.
Come and perform The Lion King Jr! Students will participate in workshops on rhythm, ritual, story, character, ensemble, space and atmosphere, enhancing their understanding of theatre and the background of The Lion King. Mornings will be spent on research and theatre activities, and applying these to The Lion King script. Afternoons will be for learning music and dance and blocking the show. Students must attend both sessions in order to participate.
- Instructor: Marcia Bender
- Students are coached by experienced High School Yohs and directed by the current YOH Theatre Director.
- It is hands-on learning as children create and produce a whole play in a two-week session.
- They learn creative courage, theatre energy, process, character development, working with others, the power of communication, self esteem and artistry as they rehearse and perform.
- It is joyous learning.
