A theatrical tribute to the wondrous tales that C.S. Lewis wove into our lives

Instructor: Jaynie Roberts, Artistic Director for Magenta Theater.

Ages: 8-17 (The class will be capped at twenty students to ensure individual attention.)

Classes: 4 to 6 p.m., Thursdays, Jan. 10 through March 14, 2013.

Final Performance: 7:30 p.m., March 15 at Magenta Theater, 606 Main, Vancouver, Wash.

Cost: $140. A registration link can be found at the Magenta website. No other money is required (except for performance tickets) and no parental obligations are expected. Registration closes when twenty students have registered and paid.

In class, students will bring to life characters such as Peter, Susan, Lucy, Edmund, Mr. Tumnus, Dr. Cornelius, Prince Caspian and more. Students will be taught a realistic/natural acting style utilizing such skills as character development, natural stage movement, script memorization, simple costuming and makeup.

Please Note: Attendance at all classes is essential. If absences are unavoidable, please advise instructor when registering. Ability to read is important as we will be working with scripts. Hesitant readers will be given smaller roles to help them feel more comfortable.
