Parks and Rec Offers New Children’s Theatre Program

Five week classes with a fun combination of acting, improv, choreography, and theatre crafts! Starting October 13th at the Williamson County Performing Arts Center.

Williamson County Parks and Recreation (WCPR) is offering a new youth theatre program, Theater 101, this fall at the Williamson County Performing Arts Center at Academy Park, 112 Everbright Ave. in Franklin.

Based off this past summer’s popular Acting, Choreography and Improv. Camp, the Theatre 101 program helps young actors to develop and hone their acting skills and confidence; cultivate dancing skills through contemporary and standard choreography styles often used in musical theatre productions; and explore the fundamentals of improvisation and performance games to enhance creative thinking, brainstorming, listening, support, team building and communication skills. Participants will also create theatre-related crafts, characters and skits, all while having loads of fun and laughs.
