The Woodland Opera House Education Program is holding registration for fall classes.

Drama classes include The Play’s the Thing for children in second through fourth grades and Acting A to Z for children in fifth through ninth grades.

Acting A to Z will explore the art of acting and cover everything from stage directions to interactive improvisation and theater games to scene study. Its nine-week session runs from 5 to 6 p.m. Tuesdays, starting Sept. 17.

Musical Theater Workshop classes provide an opportunity to develop skill as a vocalist and dancer while working on numbers from popular Broadway and movie musicals. Classes will be held for children in kindergarten through second grade from 5 to 6 p.m. on Tuesdays or Thursdays, third- through sixth-graders from 6 to 7 p.m. on Wednesdays or Thursdays and seventh- through 12th-graders from 6 to 7 p.m. Tuesdays.

Pre-ballet (ages 3-6), ballet, jazz and tap (beginning through advanced levels for ages 7 through adult) classes are also registering for new students.

New classes offered this year include beginning tap/jazz combination (ages 5-7), which will be offered from 3 to 3:45 p.m. Wednesdays. This class will teach the basics of both tap and jazz to beginners and musical theater/tap for stage (high school and adults), which will be offered from 6 to 7 p.m. Mondays.
