I Have a Dream Apprenticeship

6 Dec

Good morning readers. Over the past 12 weeks, 7 theatre students from LCCC went into 6 elementary schools, with the exception of Carey Junior High School, and taught the kids about theatre and how to write monologues. The process included acting exercises, writing monologues, and putting together a show. The kids worked on “blocking” the show, building their props, and putting together a performance for their parents.

Below is a video that I shot of 3 of my students at Buffalo Ridge Elementary School practicing their monologues. The Buffalo Ridge Elementary School performance is this Saturday, December 11, 2010 and is paired with a second elementary school.

The “I Have a Dream” show for the kids opened this past weekend on Friday, December 3, 2010. There are still 3 more opportunities to come see this cute, funny, and amazing show. Each night the performance is dedicated to an individual school, with the exception of Saturday, December 11, 2010 which is dedicated to two schools, and the monologues that the kids from that elementary school wrote will be showcased. LCCC theatre students have taken the kid’s monologues and rehearsed them to in turn perform the monologues for the children. The kids are really excited because they get to see their monologues performed on stage by real actors.

There are three more chances to see a very unique performance. The dates are:

  • Thursday, December 9, 2010 at 7:30 PM
  • Friday, December 10, 2010 at 7:30 PM
  • Saturday, December 11, 2010 at 7:30 PM
  • The doors open at 7:00 PM and curtain is at 7:30 PM. The cost for the show is $5. This is a family friendly event and is very worth the trip out to the LCCC Playhouse.

    Here are a couple of links to blogs that Cameron Green wrote in relation to the “I Have a Dream” apprenticeship project.
