The Phoenix and Turtle Club is an ensemble of young artists dedicated to exploring the messy work of performing the classics. Our mission is to transform curious and precocious youth into thoughtful and socially-conscious young creators dedicated to breathing life into both well-known and obscure texts. Each session culminates in a showcase open for family and friends.
The Wonderful World of Mary Poppins 9am-11am Ages 7-11
Get ready for Quintessence’s holiday production of P.L. Travers’ Mary Poppins by investigating selections from the books with creative theatre games. With guest appearances from the cast, students will collaborate to create their own responses concerning the magic of childhood.
Molière’s The Misanthrope 11am-1pm Ages 12-17
French comedy, written in rhyming verse, is one of the most exciting challenges for any actor. Dive deep into the background and the humor of Molière’s farce. Each student will perform a monologue and collaborate on a short excerpt from the play.
