At The Culture House, we feature a sequential theatre training program to allow our students to more easily track their progress. At each developmental level, students may enroll in not only acting training, but also classes in improvisation, auditioning, movement, and vocal technique.
The Visual Arts are a new, exciting offering here at The Culture House. With our national award-winning instructor, Matt Fox, our students have the opportunity to explore traditional and digital visual art opportunities. From animation and cartooning to more traditional drawing classes and photography, the chances to express yourself continue to expand.
Whether it is expressing our heartfelt emotions, raising our spirits, or uniting all of humanity through its power and beauty, music has become integral to our daily lives. Music also has a broad range of benefits in the healthy development of every child. The discipline needed to learn a musical instrument combined with the creativity and expressiveness that brings music to life stimulates the healthy development of our minds and personalities. Classes include private voice and private instrument lessons, as well as our Homeschool Choir and Showtunes Showoff.
We welcome you into The Culture House School of Music!
The company that brought you the critically acclaimed production of LES MISERABLES (Yardley Hall, summer 2013) and the Internationally award-winning production of BIG RIVER (Kauffman Center, summer 2014), now brings you the incredible Tony Award Winning, and Golden Globe and Academy Award nominated, INTO THE WOODS! (Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim. Book by James Lapine.)
As the result of the curse of a once-beautiful witch, a baker and his wife are childless. Three days before the rise of a blue moon, they venture into the forest to find the ingredients that will reverse the spell and restore the witch's beauty: a milk-white cow, hair as yellow as corn, a blood-red cape, and a slipper of gold. During their journey, they meet Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Jack, each one on a quest to fulfill a wish. Everyone's wishes are granted, but the consequences of their actions return to haunt them later with disastrous results.
Appropriate for Middle School and up.
