PERFORMING ARTS CLUB (grades k-5)
This is a GREAT club!
PAC kids work together to create a performance based sharing for invited guests that is performed theatre style.
PAC will delve into the basics of theatre from stage directions and projection, blocking and movement, warm-ups, theatre games and exercises. We also do a little improvisation and stand up comedy. No show is ever the same and all the show will have props and costume pieces and more created by the group.
The last session is a dress rehearsal in preparation for invited guests to join us as we share our work with an audience.
The fee includes materials.
LET'S CREATE COMICS! (GRADES 2-5)
It's a Bird, it's a plane, it's Let's Create Comics!
The fun, action packed after school program that “boldly goes, where no other after school program goes... to the cool medium of creating comics and cartoons for the Funny Pages!
From single panel cartoons to comic strips and more, this program delves into the art of creating comics, cartoons, word searches, spot the differences, crosswords, word jumbles, things you find in a “kid's page” as well as how to create a layout for these pages.
The last half of the final session will be a “publication party” where we will share our pages with our invited guests, as well as showcase our work in a gallery-type atmosphere. The fee includes materials.

Improv Live! (grades 3-5) (grades 6-8) (grades 9-12)
Improvisational Theatre is often called Improv and it's basically a form of theatre where most of, if not all of what is created on stage is done so live, or "on the spot."
This group will work on the fundamentals of Improvisation, practice techniques and warm-ups and end with an invited performance, where the group will take suggestions from the audience, working these suggestions into a scene or bit, and the audience will get a chance to participate as well.
Everyone will receive all necessary materials and a PamDemonium AFATA T-shirt.
Stand-up Comedy (grades 2-5) (grades 6-8) (grades 9-12)
Everyone has a sense of humor, everyone is funny and is capable of telling jokes and Stand- up Comedy is a great way to either hone your pre-existing funny bone or learn to tell jokes. Stand-up Comedy will teach you the art of creating a joke, putting jokes together for a short set and how to introduce and end a set for yourself or other comics. This is a fun, fun, class!
Everyone will receive a PamDemonium AFATA t-shirt
Music, Movement and More! (grades k-5) (grades 6-8)
Do you like to sing? This group will put together a half hour sharing for an audience of parents, peers and special invited guests. (Grandparents, teachers, etc.) This is different from a show choir program in that we use the "stage", learn about stage and performance techniques, develop short scenes or formal introductions that are recited.
Everyone will receive a PamDeMonium AFATA T-shirt.
