Children’s Theatre for Fall Break
Molokai Arts Center News Release
Molokai Arts Center announces a new Fall School Intercession program Oct. 6-9 all about the art of theatre performance. The Hana Keaka theatre classes, with Kumu Maile Naehu, will be for kids ages 5 to 11, held at the Molokai Arts Center studio, located at the beautiful Coffees of Hawaii location in Kualapu`u.
In four days, the Hana Keaka classes will introduce students to acting storytelling and movement, voice exercises, and end the series with a final family performance. Children will be welcome to stay during the lunch hour to help with painting a backdrop for the final performance. Full attendance is highly recommended due to the final performance, ensuring all kids get to play their parts and others are not overwhelmed with playing multiple parts due to absences.
In addition to being a lot of fun, the theatre classes help to strengthen cultural practices in storytelling, helps to build confidence, overcome their fears, solve problems, boost their creativity, think faster on their feet, be better team players, and ultimately, gain a competitive edge.
Held Monday through Thursday during fall intercession, students ages 5 to 8 can attend from 9 to 11 a.m., while 9 to 11-year-olds will participate from 12 to 2 p.m. Each session costs $12.50, to be paid in full for the four-day package of $50.
