Spring Forward with Spring Classes

Spring Forward with Spring Classes

Oddfellows Playhouse Youth Theater is now registering students for its spring theater programs. There is a full slate of Saturday morning class offerings for all ages, and exciting mini-productions during the week. Interested parents and children can visit Oddfellows Playhouse’s website to view the entire line up of classes. Registration is now available on line as well.

We are expanding our Saturday morning classes to include Little Fellows for students ages three and four. Also newly added is “First Act” for children ages five and six. These classes are a wonderful way to introduce your already imaginative and creative child to the world of theater through games, activities, art, movement and songs.

Due to popular demand “The Complete Actor” class for ages six through eight is being offered on Thursdays AND Saturday mornings. "The Complete Actor 2" for students ages nine to eleven will be offered on Wednesdays AND Saturday mornings. These classes features a curriculum of age-appropriate, basic acting, voice, and movement training for students who have recently caught the acting bug.

Spring Mini-Productions for students that have already completed study in "The Complete Actor" include "Three Samurai Cats: A Story from Japan" for students ages six to eight, and "Rootabaga Tales" by Carl Sandburg for students ages nine to eleven.

Oddfellows Playhouse is located at 128 Washington Street, Middletown. For 35 years Oddfellows Playhouse has been more than just a performing arts program. It aims to make a positive difference in the lives of young people by using the arts as tools to build self-confidence, communication skills, a sense of responsibility, and an appreciation for the richness and diversity of the world in which we live. For more information or to reserve a spot in a fall class, call (860) 347-6143 or go to www.oddfellows.org.


Oddfellows programming is made possible through the generous support of the CT Department of Education, the CT Commission on Culture & Tourism, The Stare Fund, the Middletown Commission on the Arts, Pratt & Whitney-Middletown, the Irving Kohn Foundation, Daphne Seybolt Culpeper Memorial Fund and our Media Sponsor Comcast Cable.
