Theater workshop for kids and teens

Carson Valley Community Theatre and Douglas County Parks & Recreation Department is presenting a Children's Theatre Workshop for children and teens ages 9-18.

The workshop will give the youth of Douglas County an opportunity to have a fun and exciting way to build on creative skills while working on cooperation and confidence skills.

Activities include writing a personal biography, theater games, ensemble exercises, technical aspects, speakers from professional theatrical and technical backgrounds and a final performance. The 9-12 year olds (depending on how many register) will be performing "The Richest Man in the Kingdom" by John Fewings, and the 13-18 group (also depending on amount who register) will be performing "The Bald Soprano" by Eugene Ionesco. Children and teens who are interested in other aspects of theater (lights, sound, make-up, costumes, etc.) are highly encouraged to attend.

The workshop is two weeks long and is on July 18, 20, 21, 25, 27 from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. at Carson Valley Middle School's Old Gym Playhouse. The final performance is July 28 and friends, family and community members are encouraged to attend. Cost is $25. Spaces are limited and pre-registration is required.

Instructors are Linda Diego, who is leading the younger group, and Ashley Hennefer, who is working with the teenagers. Diego is a Carson Valley Community Theatre member and was most recently seen in their performance of "The Odd Couple (Female Version)" and has been in many other shows. Hennefer is the newly graduated Douglas High School Drama Club president and most recently directed the play "Every Seventeen Minutes the Crowd Goes Crazy!" and has acted and worked on tech for numerous plays.
