LINX Theater Company instills confidence and creativity through drama and comedy education designed for kids in 2nd through 10th grade. This 2-hour class will help future theater professionals understand what will make them valuable contributors to the craft, as well as help kids opting for other fields of study. Both will gain a unique perspective and an advantageous ability to innovate as they work together as an ensemble.
In Company III, advanced players start to learn nuanced elements of verbal, physical and emotional performances that can affect an audience without their realizing it. They learn how to make an audience member root for, fear, laugh at or despise the appropriate character. The separation between actor and character becomes complete, as performers understand that nothing about their character reflects on them.
Adaptations of classic stories and intriguing original works provide balanced roles that delight players and audience members alike. Players are constantly challenged to take roles they have not experienced before, stretching their abilities and keeping them from being overlooked by future directors.
