First Act! is a theater class that teaches acting, character development, stage management, and design. Participants will gain an appreciation for a theater production and learn what goes on behind the stage.  They will do warm-up activities, acting games, improv, and play analysis.   They will learn to use their "stage voice" to project, and their body language to build character. Students will perform a short, 10-minute play on the last day of the 6-week session for parents and friends. This class will help the out-going child focus their energies and the shy child to come out of their shell. 

Classes are held on Mondays, 5:00 - 6:30 p.m. at Springfield Township Community Arts Center, 9158 Winton Rd, Building A, behind the fire station.  No class on Nov. 23 due to Thanksgiving break.
