Oddfellows Playhouse is pleased to announce its winter classes and programs. Oddfellows uses high quality arts programs, classes and performances to help young people ages 3 to 20 build self confidence and learn teamwork, cooperation, self-discipline and respect for others.
Oddfellows' Little Fellows (Ages 3-4) and First Act (Ages 5-6) classes are designed to introduce pre-K and kindergarten children to the world of theater through creative play activities, art, movement and song. Students interested in acting for the first time will be able to build their skills in the introductory Complete Actor 1 (grades 1-3) or Complete Actor 2 (grades 4-5).
Students interested in learning how to juggle, unicycle, stilt, balance, clown and perform acrobatics should be sure to catch the performance and register for the CT School of Circus Arts (Ages 12-20). Led by the creative circus artists of ARTFARM and Matica Arts, the program is the premiere youth circus program in the area.
