Broadway Bound Workshop offers free theatrical training to local youth
Paso High Theatre Company students to share acting, singing, dancing, and improvisational workshop on Saturday, April 9
–Students with the Paso High Theatre Company are preparing for what they hope will be an annual event – their Broadway Bound Workshop. Hosted by the Advanced Drama students, the free workshop will take place on Saturday, April 9 from 10 a.m. to noon at the Paso Robles High School Performing Arts Center.
The acting, singing, dancing, improvisation, and performance-based workshop for students in grades 1-12 that are interested in theatre is expected to fill up quickly. Space is limited, so parents are urged to sign up early to secure a spot for their children. Pre-register at: www.eventbrite.com/e/broadway-bound-workshop-tickets-21569569162.
“We are very excited to bring this free workshop to our community,” said PRHS Director of Theatre Arts Marcy Goodnow. “With our district really focusing on making the arts the best they can be in Paso we want to make sure it is accessible for all. The Advanced Drama students are ready to pass on what they have learned to their siblings, neighbors, little buddies, and friends.”
Senior Julia Schulte stressed the importance of sharing theatrical skills with students in the local community that, despite having an interest in theatre, may not have access to the resources in order to have an outlet for their talent and creativity.
“Theatre in itself in an art form that teaches growth and confidence, and it is important to expose young children to this and to forge connections within the community,” said Schultze.
Her fellow drama students, Jacob Bausch and Reagen Lomanto, agreed, saying they hoped everyone will be given the opportunity to at least try their hand at theatre. The free Broadway Bound Workshop may just be that opportunity that drives students and their parents to explore the possibilities that being part of a theatre and drama group offers.
“If your child even has the smallest interest in theatre, I seriously recommend doing this workshop,” said Bausch, a junior at PRHS.
Adds Lomanto, a sophomore, “Theatre is such a beautiful and easy way to discover who we are and what we can do. Maybe you’re a dancer, maybe you can dominate at improvisation, or maybe you can belt out notes like nobody’s business. This workshop is a great opportunity for kids to find out who they are.”
