Arts Alive! & the Nayatt PTO Announce the
2022 1st Grade Theater Program
“Under the Sea”

Students will learn the basics of performing for theatre: using the voice correctly, posture, controlling the body, focus, movement, dance, and singing. Improv games will be combined with introduction to scripts and poetry, exploring how to bring words to life and tell a story as a group. Children will also be exploring music and dance techniques as an intro to Musical Theatre. This FUN class will allow children to experience the JOY of the performing arts while building life-long skills. The group will work towards an end of session small performance.

REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED.

Cast List
Attendance

The play consists of an ensemble cast. Even if you think your child has a small part, they are a significant part of the play. Their absence affects the entire cast. Please do your best to ensure that your child is present for every rehearsal for which they are called. If your child has to miss a rehearsal, please notify us as soon as possible. More than two (2) absences may result in a student’s lines being reassinged to another actor.
