This winter, in addition to their in-person classes, Globus Theatre’s School of Dramatic Art (SODA) invites kids between the ages of 10 to 17 to flex their creative muscles and help make episodes for a web series.
This program is great for kids interested in script writing, film, theatre, acting, video editing, and more. All sessions are taking place over Zoom – which means kids from all over the Kawartha Lakes can join.
The program begins Feb. 4 and ends March 14. Participants will create one episode each week through three sessions:
•Fridays from 7 to 8:30 p.m. is script writing – learn about the parts of a script, story arc, character development and more.
•Saturdays from 1 to 3 p.m. is acting – casting, rehearsing, and getting the scenes filmed.
•Mondays from 7 to 8:30 p.m. is editing – see the episode get edited together, add input and learn the ways editing determines how a story is told.
Participants can sign up to be a part of the entire five-episode process or just choose aspects of the course based on their interest and availability; sign up for one week, one episode or just specific sessions. By the end of the program, Globus Theatre will release five completed short episodes. Participants, their families, and peers will be able to watch each episode and revel in a job well done.
The program is being facilitated by multi-disciplinary theatre artist and actor Katherine Cappellacci.
Since acquiring her Bachelor of Fine Arts from X University, she’s worked extensively in theatres across Ontario including appearing in Globus Theatre’s 2019 summer season in That’s Amore, and in the annual 2017 holiday pantomime, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
Over the years, Cappallacci has performed and toured with many theatre for young audiences companies including Dufflebag Theatre and Carousel Players. She’s created and facilitated youth drama programs at home and abroad, and is an avid canoe tripper, traveller, trained mezzo/alto vocalist and accomplished musician.
Over the course of the pandemic, Cappallacci has learned a thing or two about creating stories virtually and is ecstatic to bring this project to life.
The course is funded in part by Pinnguaq and the Digital Skills for Youth program. Subsidies are available to cover course tuition to make this opportunity accessible to all.
