Stages On The Sound is in its 10th year of school residencies and theatre programming aimed specifically to serve students in the Brooklyn Diocese.
Our 4th grade classes will be making Stop Motion Animations as their final project.
We’ll be focusing on games and exercises that explore storytelling, visual literacy, and collaboration within groups. Students’ final film project will be centered around a topic they are currently studying; helping connect the arts in a cross-curricular fashion.
Our 6th grade class focus will be Writing For Performance. Students will be exploring storytelling, story structure, and forms of writing for performance including both poetry and scene work. Their pieces will be presented at the program’s conclusion; reinforcing good public speaking habits through performance. Students final projects will also be centered on topics studied in 6th grade.
Our 8th grade class focus will be William Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar. Students will learn text analysis and critique, story, character creation, and rehearsal and performance techniques. Students’ final projects will be selected scenes and monologues from the play.
