Character Development (Ages 8.5+)

 

In this class, children usually have several of my Mel O' Drama sessions under their belt before joining. We delve much further into drama in character development creating characters which eventually tie into a play that we present at the end of session. We incorporate theatre games into this class also which really creates a strong bond amongst the students. We end this session with a show of our work!

Improv (Ages 8+)

 

This is a fast-paced, fun and often times HYSTERICAL class! If you've ever seen the show 'who's line is it anyway?' and LOVED it then this class is very much like the child-friendly version of that show! It's a WONDERFUL way to encourage kids to let go and create with little or no premeditation! We finish this session with a 'who's line is it anyway?' type show where we ask the audience for suggestions and when I tell you this is by far our FUNNIEST show at Mel O' Drama, I am NOT kidding! A GREAT class for the kid who just LOVES to be funny!! 

 

Wednesdays 6-7pm in Milton or Thursdays 5:15-6:15pm in Quincy

MEL O' MOVES: expressive movement

(AGES 6+) 

 

This is a GREAT class for the child who loves to move and groove! Students listen to a variety of music and together with the teacher, they discuss what emotions they feel when listening to the songs. This class encourages students to reach deep within themselves to find the most efficient ways of expressing thoughts and feelings. Students quickly realize how little the spoken word has to of with effective communication! 

 

Songs are choreographed using sign language, teaching students to express the message of each song though movement, signs and facial gestures. Children will learn the power of how actions speak louder than words as they move through the course of this class. Lead by pediatric psychologist and sign language expert, Ms. Robyn Fatseas, local children are in for such a treat in this class! 

 

Tuesdays 5-6pm in Milton

Students bond so beautifully in this process and our incredible staff nurture the actors on their journey bringing the best of everyone to the stage for the big show!

Introduction to Songwriting with Audrey Ages 7+

 

Audrey's songwriting class at Mel O' Drama has been incredibly popular this past year. From intimate classes to sell-out workshops, we are so thrilled to offer this wonderful class once again this Fall. In this 10-week session, students listen to popular music and use fun musical activities to explore elements of melody and lyric writing.  Students give their own ideas to write simple original songs together.  In a fun and encouraging environment, students will discover, "Wow! It's fun and easy to write a song!" All songs will be recorded and sent home for families to share :)
