Calling young performers! Riverfront Children's Theatre at 454 Main Street,
Fitchburg announces spring classes for kids age 4 through teens that will conclude with a public performance of an original music-theatre production: “Around The World to Fitchburg – Happy 250th.”
“This year, we wanted to create a special production for Fitchburg's 250th anniversary,” explains instructor Janet Cragin, who appeared in Fitchburg's 1964 Bicentennial pageant as 'The Muse of Fitchburg.' All children will have the opportunity to be in the play, which will be presented on Saturday, April 12 at Fitchburg Library at 1 pm.
Riverfront Children's Theatre classes include Showtime for age 4 to 6 (4-4:30, $50 ) and 7 to 9 (4:30-5:15, $60). Classes meet on Tuesdays, January 28 through April 8. Showtime classes offer movement and dance steps, songs, and improvisation, plus new features such as scene painting, and costume creation.
"This season, we are offering a new improv workshop for kids age 10 through teens," Cragin explains. “Fun Friday meets on first and third Fridays from 6 to 8 pm, (February 7, 21, March 7, 21, April 4, 18). We'll explore scene study, paint sets, work with costumes and makeup under stage lights and create crazy characters. We offered the two-hour workshop in the fall, and it was a big hit, as kids are able to explore theatrecraft in detail."
