Drama Club 2018-2019

This year our Drama club will have 2 main focuses. Improv and learning how to put on a small scale show.

For the first part of the year we will focus on Improv.  Improv is a very important stage skill for all actors and actresses to learn.  It is learning to produce something from nothing onstage.  It helps to build imagination, to learn how to interact with others on stage, helps with listening skills and learning how to react to any situation on the stage.  Plus its a ton of fun!  The games we will play will help everyone really get to know each other and work better in a group for our spring show.  Our first performance will be a Mid December Holiday Improv show.  Stay tuned for dates.

After the new year we will shift our focus to learning what it take to put on a show.  We will choose a play as a group and go through all aspects of making it a production. We will go through auditions, castings, stage step up, costumes etc.  All coming together for a final performance in May or early June.

Drama Club is open to all Caroline County Homeschoolers of all ages.  With 2 pre-requisites.  We ask that anyone that joins the club can read pretty well.  We will be doing a lot of reading out loud.  Secondly  if your child is planning on joining, that they try and commit to making all of the meetings. Life happens, but there is no way we can put on an actual play if some of the characters only show up once and a while to rehearse.

If your interested in joining, or would like some more information please contact us below.  We are looking forward to having a great Drama Club this year!!

 

Parent’s Night

We could all use a little break sometimes.

 

Join the other members of Caroline Area Homeschoolers for a kid-free parent night.  Times and locations will vary, but one thing will remain the same:  you’ll be able to spend some quality time with other homeschooling parents who live near you and face the same stresses and challenges you do day after day.

Sound good?

The next Parent Nights are scheduled for:

 

May 24, 2019 at 6 p.m.

Join us for a sit down meal at a local eatery.  RSVP for more info!

 

*Membership in Caroline Area Homeschoolers VA begins with attendance at one of our public events.  After you decide to join us, there is a $10 yearly fee.  Attendance at one public event per year is required to retain membership.  We’d love to see you! *
