After School Classes

After school classes at Portland Stage produce a safe environment for young people to find a higher sense of play, stretch their imaginations, and gain valuable social skills such as listening, risk taking, ensemble building, public speaking, and leadership through storytelling. These classes are wildly fun, creative, spontaneous, and begin to build skills for the young actor or non-actor’s voice, body, and imagination.

Middle school students will delve into the wild and wacky world of the bard. Participants will investigate the aspects of the stories of Shakespeare’s exciting plays, including: the powerful world of his magical creatures, the majesty of his kings, the zaniness of his clowns, and how relevant these stories are over 500 years after they were written. This class will culminate in a performance celebrating the arrival of William Shakespeare’s first folio at the Portland Public Library on March 24th at 6 pm.
