Creative Stages


Children ages 4-17 are invited to participate in Siena Heights University's Creative Stages fall program, which runs from Sept. 11-Nov. 6.

Unique to Lenawee County, this program helps enhance a child’s imagination, creativity and personal development. Creative Stages teachers include professional teaching artists as well as Siena Heights University students.
 The 10-week drama session is followed by auditions for the main stage children’s performance (rehearsals for this performance are conducted during January with a production in February.) Another 10-week session is offered during the winter. Students must be enrolled in either the fall or winter drama session to participate in the production.

Here are the class options:

Grades 1-2: Mondays—Story Drama: 4:15-5:15 p.m.
Students will participate in fun-filled story drama experiences designed to enhance self awareness, physical awareness, verbal expression, creativity and imaginative play.

Grades 3-5: Tuesdays—Dramatic Adventures: 4:15-5:15 p.m.
Students will develop adventures through improvisation, creative dramatics, story dra-ma, pantomime and theatre games.

Grades 6-8: Tuesdays—Improvisational Theatre/Drama: 5:30-6:30 p.m.
Students will create “devised theatre” with an emphasis on improvisation, verbal ex-pression, role playing, character develop-ment, and movement.

Grades 7-12: Tuesdays—Young Actor’s Workshop: 5:30-6:30 p.m.
Students will explore advanced theatre skills through a variety of activities including improvisation, advanced character develop-ment, movement for the stage and scene work.
