THEATRE.


Let
the
redeemed
of
the
LORD
tell
their
story…
‐
Psalm
107:2


Studies
consistently
show
that
receiving
acting
and
theatre
education
from
an
early
age
helps
students
 academically,
especially
in
the
areas
of
reading
comprehension,
narrative
writing,
reasoning,

 memorization,
and
social
interaction.

Theatre
is
not
only
fun,
it’s
practical!


 
 Greenleaf’s
theatre
program
offers
classes
for
students
age
6
through
adult
in
a
welcoming,
encouraging
 environment.

We
train
students
through
a
progressive
curriculum
of
improvisation,
speech
and
elocution

 training,
movement
exercises,
scene
and
ensemble
work,
and
acting
theory.

We
also
offer
classes
that
focus

 on
specific
aspects
of
acting,
such
as
improv
or
musical
theatre.

Our
student
plays
and
musicals
each
spring

 give
young
actors
a
chance
to
perform
and
serve
the
community
through
acting.


 
 Actors
typically
benefit
from
several
years
at
each
level
in
order
to
achieve
skill
mastery
and
confidence.
Each

 year,
new
exercises
and
scenes
are
incorporated
so
that
the
classes
are
always
fun,
exciting,
and
challenging

 for
young
actors.
All
classes
will
participate
in
an
acting
showcase
at
the
end
of
each
semester.

Theatre
 students
will
also
have
the
opportunity
to
audition
for
