NORFOLK, NE – Area children learned the ins and outs of live theatre during a workshop recently at Northeast Community College. The students participated in the event that was sponsored and organized by the Theatre Department’s Drama Club.
“The day went very well,” said Adam Peterson, director of theatre at the College. “We had nearly 40 third through eighth grade students who attended workshops on acting and costume design. They finished the day with a staged reading, which was open to their families.”
The day was broken up into rotating activities in order to allow students to work in small groups to focus on each fundamental prior to the performance. Each student also received a t-shirt.
Proceeds from the workshop allowed Northeast theatre students to attend the Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival in Sioux Falls this week.
Northeast theatre students who participated in the workshop were Marissa Carr, Norfolk, Amber Foland, Genoa, Shelby Laird, Pender, Haley Lidgett, Norfolk, David McCaffrey, Norfolk, Josue Meza, Madison, Dalton Rath, Randolph, and Sheldon Wattier, Norfolk.
