Workshops can take place at the Alley Theatre or on your school’s campus. In addition to all grade levels, we can also lead workshops for after-school programs, churches, community centers, or any group interested in learning about theatre. Workshops can be as short as an hour or as long as a full day. Residencies are similar to workshops but occur over an extended period of time. Prices range from $80-$100 per visit for workshops and residencies.
Using the fundamental tools of an actor — imagination, body, voice and teamwork — learn techniques to strengthen performance, communication, and cooperation skills.
Ensemble and Trust Building
Through a series of dynamic theatre activities, learn how to deepen trust and support among your students to facilitate effective and creative group work.
Learn to create unique characters, build an engaging story and strengthen problem-solving skills through the interactive art of thinking on your feet.
Introduce students to dramatic writing as a creative outlet. Students learn about dramatic structure and write their own 10-minute plays under the guidance of an Alley Teaching Artist. Selected plays will be featured in our Alley Playwriting 360º showcase in May.
Study Laban, Viewpoints and Rasa Aesthetics. Each are practical performance theories that help students fully engage their bodies as actors.
Whether you are studying the sonnets, or putting on a production of Romeo & Juliet, the Alley can help you and your students gain insight to the great work of the Bard.
