Each day during the Story Improv workshop, students ages 5–8 will enact the adventures of a children's storybook. The On the Spot: Improvisation session, best for students 8–14, will have students acting without scripts in order to build their quick wit and confidence. During the intensive two-week Piece Makers class, budding actors, playwrights, and directors ages 8–14 will create and perform their own original piece of theater. After learning many of the exercises and games used by the Irondale Theater Company, the class will become its own acting troupe and debut their show. This workshop includes pizza dinner for the players followed by post-performance refreshments for all.
Workshops at the Irondale Center are taught by the professional and experienced teachers of the Irondale Ensemble Project, who enthusiastically encourage new generations of artists and performers through their summer program. No previous experience is required to participate, and each session includes an Irondale T-shirt or cap for each student. Students should bring their lunches each day, though snacks and sodas can be bought at the theater. Although not included with this side deal, early drop-off and late pick-up options are available for an additional cost.
