LACONIA — The Winnipesaukee Playhouse is offering a series of classes this spring, ranging from singing to acting to dance fitness. This session's catalogue, with classes that begin the week of April 8 and run for six to seven weeks, includes classes for youngsters, teenagers and adults.
The Playhouse's Education Department is also taking enrollments for its April school vacation camp.
Many of the classes on this spring's schedule have been offered in the past, including Playing in the Shadows, a shadow puppetry class for kids in grades 3-6; Music Mania, a music and movement class for grades K-2 and Teen Improv. There are also several new classes, including Story Drama for grades K-2, Beginning Drama for grades 3-6, Dance Fitness: Broadway Style! for teens and adults, Girl Power! for teens in grades 7-10, and Wine, Cheese, & Music to Please for
The courses are taught by the Playhouse's experienced theater, music and movement instructors and take
place at the Education Building on the Playhouse's Meredith Campus at 50 Reservoir Road.
The week-long spring vacation program offers drama, music and art instruction either in either half- or full-day sessions. This season's theme is "Create Your Own Superhero!" Children in grades K-6 will have the opportunity to spend the week creating their own alter ego. They'll devise characters and stories, create costumes, and even write their own theme songs.
Scholarships are available for all age groups, thanks to a grant from the WLNH Children's Auction. For more information on all of these programs, contact (603) 366-7377 or visit www.winniplayhouse.org.
