Fantasy Playhouse to start ‘Fridays with Fantasy’ in Madison

MADISON – Young fans of stage music and drama will have access to weekly classes in Madison with “Fridays with Fantasy.”

Fantasy Playhouse Children’s Theater & Academy will introduce these new classes on Feb. 9 at Dublin Park, 8324 Old Madison Pike. Fridays with Fantasy is open to children in kindergarten through fifth grade.

“We’ve been keeping a secret!” Emily Rodrick said. She serves as Marketing/Public Relations Manager for Fantasy. “We’re coming to Madison after many requests for Fantasy to be a little closer to the City of Madison. We’re thrilled to announce our new programming.”

Fridays with Fantasy will offer two different themes for two different age groups:

* “Sing Disney! Dance Disney!” – Open to children in grades K-2 from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. “This class will leave actors singing and dancing all week long,” Fantasy Playhouse Education Director Taylor Bogan said. “Join us for this exciting nine-week session as we focus on learning the basics of musical theatre while reenacting songs and scenes from your favorite Disney movies and shows.”

In addition, actors will work on creative movement, rhythm and critical thinking with warm-ups, games and improvisation. At the end of each session, students will receive a certificate of achievement.

* “Acting & Improv” – Open to children in grades 3-5 from 5 to 6 p.m. “Looking for a way to work out your funny bone? Then this is the class for you,” Bogan said. “Through acting techniques, improv games, scenes and sketches, actors will learn characterization and storytelling while striking comedy gold.”

“Don’t miss the laughs and a chance to find your inner comedian. This class is perfect for theatre lovers of all experience levels,” Bogan said. Each student will receive a certificate of completion.

“Our goal is to help students develop their bodies, voices, minds and imaginations to enable them to flourish and grow, both as artists and people through these programs,” Bogan said.

Registration is now open. Limited space is available. To register, visit bit.ly/FPCTAregister. In the section “Fridays with Fantasy in Madison,” click VIEW. On the next window, select the class that the actor wants to attend.

Tuition is $180. Classes will not meet during Spring Break, the week of March 15.

“At the end of the semester, students will showcase their work in our ‘Class Sharings’ for invited family and friends,” Bogan said.

Fantasy Playhouse’s office address is 3312 Long Ave. SW in Huntsville. For more information, call 256-539-6829, email educationdirector@fantasyplayhouse.com or visit fantasyplayhouse.com.
