10 AM Middle School - Learn how to think on your feet and hone your acting skills through improvisation games! Each week, we will focus on games to teach the rules of improv and improve your skills! We’ll be working on topics such as physical improv, verbal wit, group interaction, and much more! Each session is sure to be filled with laughter and FUN!

11 AM -- High School - Ever wanted to test out your skills as a director? How about as a technical designer or costumer? Or maybe you’d like to continue honing your skills as an actor? Either way, this trimester of high school Footlights is for YOU! Our High School Troupe will be directing, producing, and acting in group one-act plays.
