Applause KIDS! – Children’s Theatre Program About to Begin

Do you have a student who has done some acting and wants to do more?  Is your child interested in learning more about theatre, but hasn’t had the chance to experience acting in school?   Can’t afford some of the programs that are offered? Yuba Sutter Arts is pleased to announce its newest Arts in Education program – Applause KIDS!

Applause KIDS! is a free program being offered at Yuba Sutter Arts this fall that encourages young people from 8 – 13 to either get up on stage for the first time or work on any performance skills they may already have.  Led by two Marysville Charter Academy for the Arts graduates, Julian Barkley-Brinson and Megan Molly O’Shea Enderton, Applause KIDS! will provide students with a safe, enriching educational environment.

“I am passionate about arts education in this community, and it is my goal to be able to provide quality programs to our youth for free,” said Julian, Founder of Rise Up! Youth Program for the Performing Arts. Julian, Megan, and an entire group of hard working volunteer artists are contributing their time and talents to get the much-needed program off the ground.

Tryouts will be held at the Burrows Theater at 630 E Street in Marysville on Thursday, August 30 and Friday August 31 from 5:30 to 8pm.  Classes will be held on Mondays and Thursdays starting on Thursday September 6 from 6 – 7:30pm through November 13th.  Four public performances will be held between November 15thand 18th.

Students will learn character development through voice and movement work, develop fundamental acting skills, practice singing and dancing and help create whole scenes with other students.

Applause KIDS! will be held indoors and outdoors in a beautiful setting at Yuba Sutter Arts’ main campus in Marysville.  Students will enjoy playing theatre games and learning theatre exercises.

The fall session culminates in final performances featuring all the elements learned during class.

Interested parents or guardians should contact Yuba Sutter Arts at 530-742-ARTS or email for more information.
