Basics of Stage Combat for Teens

Sun, Jun 11, 10 a.m.  •  $30 – $40*

Theatrical stage combat is the illusion of violence. Kristen Mun-Van Noy will be offering three different classes, each focusing on a different area of the world of stage combat. In these courses, teens will learn the necessary skills and techniques that professional actors use to "die" onstage night after night.  

The title "A Midsummer Night’s Dream," green foliage, and flowers frame a couple frolicking hand in hand, silhouetted by a large, full moon.

June 3 – July 2, 2023

One of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies! This beguiling odyssey in an enchanted forest on a very magical midsummer night reminds us that “the course of true love never did run smooth” — so watch your step!
