Newnan Theatre Company’s Academy of Theatre Arts offers musical theatre classes for middle school and elementary students. Classes focus on staging a performance. This performance-based class welcomes all levels of experience.  Students will learn many facets of theatre, including stage directions, vocal technique, choreography, character development, set design, costuming, and more. Each student will be able to perform.

This fall the performance is Disney’s The Jungle Book. Banished by the ferocious tiger, Shere Khan, a human boy named Mowgli and his panther friend, Bagheera, are on the run in the deepest parts of the jungle. On their journey, the two meet a sinister snake named Kaa, a herd of elephants and a giant bear named Baloo, who teaches them the swingin' musical rhythms of the jungle. After surviving a dangerous encounter with a band of monkeys led by King Louie, Mowgli and Bagheera are forced to run for their lives. When Shere Khan returns, our heroes must rally their fellow animals into battle and restore peace throughout the jungle.

Classes begin Mon, Aug 8, for middle school and Tue, Aug 9, for elementary.  Class times are 4:30-6:30.  The class will run for 14 weeks and will end with performances for friends, family, and the general public. The performance dates are Fri, Nov 4, and Sat, Nov 5.
