School Play in a Box
PYT is pleased to offer on-site, after school drama classes for both public and private schools, called School Play in a Box (SPIB). With our SPIB program, students learn basic acting skills, character development, team-building, story telling, creativity, leadership skills, and more! It’s also a great way for students to make new friends, and build confidence.
Our instructors are experienced theater professionals, and will meet with your students (up to 20 per class) once a week for an hour and a half at a time. During our meetings, we play theater games, learn basic acting skills, and rehearse a script for a final performance.
The class culminates after 10 weeks with a play that will be presented to family and friends. PYT provides the script, instructor, props, sound cues, backdrops, simple costume suggestions, registration, flyer and curriculum. The school provides a large space for rehearsals and performances, help publicizing the class/disseminating class info to parents and students, and a point person to liaise between the school and PYT. Parents should be available by email for updates and will be asked to provide a simple costume for their child (instructions provided).
