CUSTOM CLASSES
for adults and for children

As part of EASY Theatre's educational program we offer workshops and classes, a mentor program, an Artist in Residence program, a Playwright in Residence program, and free and reduced-priced theatrical performances to school groups and children's charities. 

We have regularly scheduled classes, and we're available to schedule classes on a as needed basis.

Often we have a matching grant program for public and private schools and non-profits to schedule performances.

HOW TO ORGANIZE A WORKSHOP IN YOUR AREA
  1. Choose a workshop.
  2. Choose a potential date and a backup date.
  3. Identify a potential site to hold the workshop.
  4. Send us the contact info for the site, and we'll lock in the date, and location, and set up a web page for student registration if you wish.
  5. You let people in your area know about the event by email, phone, posters, press releases, or what you know works best in your community.  Often it is as easy as calling friends. 
  6. Wait for the workshop to fill.
  7. Attend and enjoy the workshop.
  8. If there is enough interest, you might consider doing an ongoing class. 
  9. Most requested classes are production classes which end in performances.
If you have any questions, email info@easytheatre.com or call.

Info for WORKSHOPS offered in conjunction with our touring show.
Acting and Performance:
    This physical workshop includes theatre games, which illuminate energy, ensemble, focus, creativity, and trust through stage movement, audience awareness, and improvisation.  This very theatrical workshop has practical applications.  The ideas explored relate to self-awareness, setting and achieving goals, teamwork, and creating in a positive environment.  Each session adapts to the participants. At times there is history, theory, song, dance, and drama but always all-out performance in this workshop where everyone gets their moment. Come dressed to roll on the floor, laugh, play, and have fun.
