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.

The Play’s the Thing is designed to develop the young actor’s creativity and confidence through the use of theater games and short fairy tale scenes. The nine-week session will meet from 4 to 5 p.m. Tuesdays, starting Sept. 17.

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. The nine-week session will begin Sept. 17.

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. This class is perfect for the beginner or actor ready to brush up their skills for upcoming auditions.

Dance classes will begin Sept. 3 and will conclude with the Spring Showcase performed May 31 and June 1 on the Opera House stage.

All auditioners should come with sheet music to a prepared song and dressed to dance. Broadway Bound will perform at local venues throughout the year and will prepare an audition for a possible San Francisco performance and master class.

The Woodland Opera House also will offer several classes specifically designed for home-schooled children.

Fun with Puppets, an introduction to the world of puppetry, will run from 10 to 11 a.m. Students will create their own puppets and learn the basics of manipulation, voice and characterization. The class is open to children in third through fifth grades.

Theater Arts Workshop will be held from 11:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. on Wednesdays. This class is recommended for all levels. Explore character study, improvisation, concentration, voice and movement through theater games, exercises and scenes.
