After-school programs at NC Stage


NC Stage is launching two new classes this fall.

A Classical Theatre course will be offered for 8th – 12th grade students. This class will delve into the “how to’s” of classical texts: How to read the text, how to approach the role, how to portray characters using archetypes, etc. This applied script analysis course will help you learn the tools to take on material from the Greeks to Shakespeare to Moliere. This nine-week class will be offered from 4-5:30 on Mondays, Sept. 12th – Nov. 14th and will be taught by Equity actor Catori Swann.

A “Create-A-Play” class will be offered for 1st – 4th grades. Students will discover the building blocks of theatre through games, group work, and basic theatre techniques! You’ll learn how to use the body and voice to create a character and transport yourself into the play. The class concludes with an original play written by the students and performed for parents on the last day of class. This nine-week class will be offered from 4-5:30 on Mondays, Sept. 12th – Nov. 14th.

Both classes will be held at Jubilee Community located on 46 Wall Street in downtown Asheville, just a few blocks away from NC Stage’s location. Both classes will be held on Mondays from September 12th – November 14th (with the exception of Oct. 31st). Tuition is $250 for each class.
