Come play with us! The Viola Project believes in teaching that is multi-disciplinary, kid-centered and fun. In the course of one week, your daughter could dominate the stage as Lady Macbeth, choreograph her own physical- theatre version of "Twelfth Night," design a costume for a character of her own creation, and still make it out to the beach for ice cream with all of her new friends. We teach acting skills, but we also teach leadership, co-operation, creativity and confidence. Although we celebrate the end of each workshop with a performance of selected scenes, we never have auditions. Instead, we make sure every student has an experience that's both challenging and rewarding. You can find us at City Lit Theatre in Edgewater and all over the city at our in-school workshops and community workshops. We could even come to you! find out more
What makes a happy ending, and what makes a tragedy? In honor of Martin Luther King, the Viola Project will investigate three plays in which characters face great injustice, from prejudice and persecution to false accusation. “King Lear,” “Measure For Measure” and “A Merchant of Venice” are beautiful plays that raise difficult questions. At this workshop, the students will judge.
Damsels are doing it for themselves! This February, be your own Valentine with a workshop that focuses on Shakespeare’s independent women. Sure, romantic songs and handwritten poems are fun, but sometimes a girl just has to run off into the forest, and learn to love her-self. You go, Rosalind!
