studio

Once Upon a Kingdom Theatre invites children 6-16 years old to the theatre studio!

In our theatre your children will be studying the best of the world literature and art, will learn to sing, dance and draw, will become confident and free in public presentations, will develop creative thinking, and discover their talents. And most importantly, they will find new friends who share the same passion for theatre!

In the program of the studio: production of plays, acting, stage movement/ dance, stage speech/ vocal, stage combat; set, costume and make-up design, lighting and sound design, stage management, and theatre criticism. All classes are taught at the highest professional level to provide intensive training for children. All of our instructors have Masters Degree in Theatre and are practicing artists in Ottawa and abroad.

Our advanced classes tour with their productions around the world, participate at international theatre festivals and children’s theatre exchanges. We help them to see theatre from the global perspective, receive training from world-famous theatre professionals, meet new like-minded friends around the world, and create shows that are up to the international standard of modern art and theatre.

This Fall our theatre is opening a new unique program for young Stage Managers ages 11-17! And it is FREE! Get in touch with us for more info and the application form! Description: OUK Theatre’s Stage Management Practical is designed to provide young individuals who are interested in backstage work in general or specifically stage management with the tools and experience they need to develop a skill set in play production. The student chosen will be paired with one of our existing classes and be responsible for organizing props/set/costume, recording pertinent blocking, run warm-ups with cast members, closely work with actors and the director, etc (depending on the instructor’s requirements). The student will also receive one-on-one training with OUK staff, in regards to organizing/maintaining a prompt book, and other tasks required of a stage manager. This student is required to attend all rehearsals and performances the chosen class participates in. This program is offered both in English and Russian language. * OUK Theatre will be accepting 1-2 student(s) for this 2015/2016 year. Applying: Application to the Stage Management Practical requires the student to fill out a form detailing their availability, experience and interest in backstage work.  In addition, students may be required to attend an interview to further discuss their current skills in the theatrical field as well as their desire to learn new skills.  OUK staff will be available through email or phone to help students fill out forms or prepare for an interview if they so wish. If you have any questions please feel free to contact Ekaterina Vetrov at onceuponakingdom@gmail.com or  Alexandra Isenor at oukmanager@gmail.com
