NEWHALL FAMILY THEATRE offers free workshop April 30
Free workshops on show production to be offered
Raising the Curtain Foundation is happy to bring back the theatre workshop that was part of last fall's A Celebration of the Performing Arts. On April 30, the Newhall Family Theatre will be hosting this free, interactive event for children to learn about the various jobs in theatre production.
Raising the Curtain Foundation will present “A Celebration of the Performing Arts” from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at the theater on the campus of Newhall Elementary School. Admission is free, but tickets must be reserved by visiting https://www.eventbrite.com/e/a-celebration-of-the-performing-arts-tickets-298742184917.
“It’s a terrific way to introduce kids to performing arts and a great opportunity to welcome the community and neighbors into the theater so they can share our excitement,” said Foundation president Carol Rock. “We’ll talk about what it takes to put on a production and show kids that talent on stage doesn’t happen without talent behind the scenes. Maybe some will come away wanting to get more involved in the arts.”
From 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., children will be able to learn about the creative process, including a theater overview, directing, set design, props, costumes, makeup, lighting and sound. Short sessions will be taught by local volunteers with experience in their respective fields. Participants who complete the series will receive a small gift and instructors will be available for follow-up questions.
A Celebration of the Performing Arts is part of the Newhall Family Theatre and Raising the Curtain Foundation’s goal of educating the community about the arts while encouraging their involvement.
The Newhall Family Theatre is part of the campus of Newhall Elementary School (24607 Walnut Street, Newhall) and is a performance space available for local groups and production companies to rent for shows, lectures, plays and musicals and events open to the community. Raising the Curtain Foundation supports and enhances the Newhall Family Theatre as an inclusive performance venue for members of the community, artists, students and educators.
