ODDFELLOWS PLAYHOUSE ANNOUNCES WINTER CLASSES FOR LITTLE FELLOWS

Oddfellows Playhouse is now registering for two winter performing arts classes for our youngest thespians. “Little Fellows” classes for preschoolers begin Saturday, January 12 and run for 8 weeks.

“Theater Toddlers,” taught by Jane Harris, gives little ones, ages 2-3, the chance to play theater games, read stories, and bring the characters in the stories to life using voice, movement, and music. Parents or caregivers participate in this class with the child. “Adventures in Acting,” taught by Kim West, lets youngsters ages 4-5 act out stories and fairy tales, explore character through theater games and skits, and learn simple theater vocabulary. “Theater Toddlers” meets Saturdays from 10-11 am. “Adventures in Acting” meets Saturdays from 11 am-12 noon. Tuition is $100 for each 8 week program.

Oddfellows Playhouse is located at 128 Washington Street, Middletown. More than just a performing arts program, Oddfellows aims to make a positive difference in the lives of young people by using the arts as tools to build self-confidence, communication skills, a sense of responsibility, and an appreciation for the richness and diversity of the world in which we live.
