Things to Do
Monday, July 27th
Music with Mr. Granger (9:00 - 11:00 AM) @ 95 Hamilton Ave, Corinth NY 12822
Be ready to sing! Bring a chair or towel, plenty of water, a pencil, and a folder to keep your music organized. Throughout the music workshops, participants will learn proper vocal and breathing techniques through a variety of musical theater songs and exercises. By utilizing technology and small in-person outdoor gatherings, students will prepare several large and small group numbers from popular Broadway musicals. Students will have an active input in their learning and have a final virtual or socially distanced showcase by the end of the program. All ages are welcome.
Monday Movie Night (7:00 PM) @ Netflix Party
Join us for our fifth and final Monday Movie Night! We really enjoyed watching the movie The Princess and the Frog last week! We hope to see as many of you as possible for our last movie night together. This Monday, we will be watching Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. We will use the browser extension, Netflix Party, to watch this movie together! We will be able to watch all at the same time, and participants can type in a chat alongside the movie while they watch.

Intro to Special Effects with Jovanni (9:00 - 11:00 AM) @ Zoom
Special effect design is a combination of prop and set design, and technical design. Participants in this workshop will have the opportunity to explore the vast world of special effects. We will learn about audio, visual, and even physical effects, and how they can create the illusion of weather or magic. We will discover methods to enhance the scenes and plot of a performance, and discuss how we can contribute to the main goal of theatrical performance: to make the audience forget that they are in a theatre at all. Join us and get your feet wet in the world of special effects!
