Kids workshop

SEQUIM — Olympic Theatre Arts, 414 N. Sequim Ave., will host the first in a week-long series of courses about theater for kids at 9 a.m. Monday.

The one-week theatre workshop is open to youths ages 6 to 18. It will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. daily through Friday.

Tuition assistance is available for those unable to attend for financial reasons.

This is the third winter workshop offered by OTA, and it is titled “Defining Your Shape” with seasoned instructors Bonne Smith and Danny Willis leading the group.

“We will be exploring spatial awareness on stage,” Smith said.

“The actors will discover how to project themselves onto the theater stage landscape through knowledge of how to follow stage directions.”

The workshop will conclude with a staged showcase presentation for invited guests where the group will be able to practice their skills before a live audience.

Registration forms are available online at olympictheatrearts.org or by calling or visiting the OTA business office. The business office will be closed today but will accept registrations at the door Monday.
