When was the last time your child did something remarkable? Here, it happens all the time!
BUILDING OUR PROGRAM.
This new theatre program focuses on theatre arts education for young people five to seventeen years old. Bringing a new dynamic to the theatrical offerings at the Point, Playground offers a family-friendly rehearsal schedule. No experience is necessary and all children enrolled will perform. The children’s theatre shows are directed by HCAF’s Artistic Director Dan Kirkland.
For each show, there are two parent’s meetings. At these meetings, parents receive information on our current show and the theatre’s goals, mission, and focus. The meetings are required for registration, unless alternate arrangements are made with the director. We are excited to see the growth potential of this program, and we expect to see an expansion to the schedule in coming seasons.
Our policy is to allow all children a chance to participate. We do not ‘star’ any child over another. The children’s theatre gives them a chance to learn responsibility, teamwork, public speaking, memorization and other valuable skills during their time in the program. They will also receive instruction in technical aspects of theatre (lights, sound, and sets). As a family theatre, we encourage our parents to be involved in rehearsals and performances. There are often roles for adults in our shows, which allow parents the unique opportunity to participate directly with their child(ren). By making the program something parents can also experience, the positive effects broaden to encompass the whole family.
