Members of the Spinningglass ensemble work collaboratively on Lookingglass scripts as they study techniques of ensemble theatre. Students in grades 6 – 8 incorporate Lookingglass core values (invention, transformation and collaboration) into their process of creating an original play. Each session, students will adapt a Lookingglass story:

Fall 2019: The Little Prince

Winter 2020: The Odyssey

Spring 2020: Alice in Wonderland

Weekly class includes warm-ups and skill-based theatre games and exercises, and often includes exploring Lookingglass Theatre’s multi-disciplinary approach (including at times, physical theatre, visual art, etc.). Additionally, students also write, improvise, create, and rehearse their original scripts. On the last day of class, family and friends are invited to watch the “informance” (informal performance) featuring the students’ original work!

Saturday classes will take place at Fourth Presbyterian Church
