Fantasy Playhouse schedules spring classes, production of ‘Tinker Bell’

HUNTSVILLE – Arts-minded youth can engage in a full schedule of spring classes with Fantasy Playhouse Children’s Theater & Academy.

Spring academy classes will run from April 5 through May 15 for five- through 18-year-olds. Fantasy Playhouse’s address is 3312 Long Ave. in Huntsville.

Instructors encourage parents to expand their child’s creativity with these fun classes. Year-round classes reach students of all skill levels. Fantasy Playhouse’s goal is to help students develop their bodies, voices, minds and imaginations to flourish as both artists and people.

Class instruction focuses on life skills, such as active listening, teamwork, self-confidence, concentration, critical thinking and empathy. Students can follow their inclinations or develop a skill in creative drama, acting, musical theatre, dance, film, performance showcases and theme classes.

At semester’s end, students can invite relatives and friends to a showcase of their work in a ‘class sharing.’

All in virtual format, Spring 2021 classes’ diverse array of curriculum can take a student through intensive rehearsals for both Broadway dance and singing/acting.

For an infusion of acting, singing and dancing, students can enroll in “Musical Theatre Mini Showcase” for “Tangled.” Both including a class-sharing performance on the last class day, “Dance Party” for five- through seven-year-olds and “Comedic Acting” for youth from 13 to 18 years old give options for the younger students, as well as teenagers.

Teen actors can participate in the “Mini Showcase: Sherlock Holmes.” Another session delves into creating comedic commercials.

“Fridays with Olaf” combines acting, singing and dancing for five- through seven-year-olds. ‘Tweens’ will be interested in “Video Game Adventures: Mario Party” to hone their acting skills.

Class fees vary from $75 to $125, and class time varies from one to two hours. For more information about classes, email Education Director Candice Cooper at EducationDirector@FantasyPlayhouse.com.

In other events, Fantasy Playhouse students will present “Tinker Bell,” a derivative tale from “Peter Pan” by J.M. Barrie. The performance venue will be the grounds of Huntsville Botanical Garden with shows on May 15 at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. and May 16 at noon and 3 p.m.

For more information, call 256-539-6829, email info@fantasyplayhouse.com or EducationDirector@fantasyplayhouse.com or visit fantasyplayhouse.com.
