child will learn and grow throughout the week as an individual,
valued part of a collaborative team.
Compass Creative Dramatics residencies encourage students to have fun and explore the dramatic arts by participating in a full production of a classic children's story. During their theatre residency, kids will be part of a collaborative artistic process that encourages teamwork -- while still inspiring them to take ownership of and pride in their unique ideas and capabilities.
residencies are a great opportunity to make new friends.
Students are grouped by age for
the afternoon activities, allowing age-appropriate lesson planning. They
are integrated during rehearsals, so your student will learn how to collaborate
with students from first grade up through middle school students.
encourages kids to expand their horizons by stretching their creativity
Our programming encourages
imagination and critical thinking, providing a safe environment in which kids
can take healthy risks and explore their strengths and weaknesses. Throughout
the week, our students learn about themselves and discover how to turn their
limitations into assets.
residencies are a great way to supplement previous and ongoing theatre
experience, or to introduce students to theatre for the first time.
Since the program is designed to be customized and flexible to a wide variety of ages, experience, and talents, we are able to adjust the teaching and guidance as well as the level of difficulty for each student, which means that whether your child is a veteran of the stage or a first-timer, we'll be glad to help nurture them and challenge them to further growth.
Schedule: Each day, the tour actor/educators will rehearse
with the students for three hours plus one 15-minute break.

announced and rehearsal schedules are distributed. Some children will
then be dismissed until the next day, and others will stay for a fifteen-minute
break and a half-hour rehearsal.

times are staggered, so once again, not all students will be required to be
there the entire three hours. Please keep in mind, however, that in order

royal entourage, and a zany collection of other delightful kingdom characters!
Everyone's at odds when the time comes for the comic-book-loving prince to find the right girl amongst a gaggle of silly princesses. Peas & Harmony is a quirky retelling of Hans Christian Andersen's The Princess & The Pea, in which showing respect might just pave the road to happily ever after!
