Curtain Call is a dynamic theatre/music theatre program for aspiring grades 6-8 students who are passionate , or simply curious about the performing arts.
Every year, students will encounter a variety of theatrical techniques, focuses and opportunities that will lead to a broad expanse of theatrical knowledge and experiences. Students can anticipate exciting field trips, workshops, drama and improv games, monologues, scene study, glee club, worship music and much more!
There are multiple performance opportunities available throughout the year, including: in-class performances, glee club cabaret, community outreach and our main performance opportunity of our Spring musical! Some of our past productions include – “Peter Pan Jr”, “Sound of Music”, “Beauty and the Beast Jr”, “Grease Jr”, “Into The Woods Jr”, and "Alice In Wonderland". Students will get the full professional feel of being in a big production, from learning the music and choreography, to being onstage with lights, sound and costumes! Our shows take place at Theatre Burlington, and the students will be able to assist in all aspects of the show from painting the sets, to assisting backstage. It is a self-confidence building and meaningful experience that no student will want to miss!
Overall, the intent of the Curtain Call Program is to provide students with a unique opportunity to experience theatre in a Christ-centered way. To learn about and develop the individual talents that God has given to each student, and how to use them in God honouring ways. We hope that students grow not only as actors/singers, but as Godly individuals. The program is focused on seeing students achieve success in all areas of life.
