Theatre On The Ridge now has a new rehearsal and program space as it partners with the Utica Memory Hall to create a home base for our theatre education and community performance programs. We are excited to be taking root in Scugog and to be able to offer youth and adult classes in stagecraft, playwriting and production skills, along with regular staged readings and studio scale productions.
Check out what’s starting up the week of April 16!
Theatre on the Ridge artistic director Carey Nicholson, brings back her popular non-aerobic stretch and conditioning class – Moving Well – on Monday and Friday mornings and Wednesday evenings. It’s a moderate to almost intense class using body weight, gravity and breathing for general conditioning, stress management, repetitive physical stress and injury recovery.
Also on Wednesday evenings starting April 18th, immediately following Moving Well, is a drop in Open Improv class led by Durham Improv members, Scott Barnes and Elysabeth Reavell-Roy. Whether you are a beginner or experienced improvisation artist, this relaxed class is the perfect way to have some fun in the middle of a busy week!
And starting Tuesday, May 8th , Smart Acts founder Michael Serres and guest instructor Annette Stokes offer a 6 week Introduction to Drama for Adults program. Fun and informal, the program will explore voice and movement to create characters and dramatic storytelling.
Theatre on the Ridge is just settling into its new home, so be sure to watch for announcements on the line up for our upcoming Readings on the Ridge evenings, featuring local playwrights, artists and Theatre on the Ridge company members.
