Junior Company

The Future of Art

Our middle school ensemble, for ages 10-13, is a junior version of our teen ensemble, Irondale’s Young Company.  Students will learn the essentials of theatrical stagecraft, including: character development, relationship building, improvisation, acting, movement and space work, design, playwriting, directing, and game play. Each session will culminate in a final project: tailored to the group’s interests and unique dynamics.

Sessions meet Mondays from 4:00 – 6:00PM for three rounds of 9 classes. Students are encouraged to commit for the whole season. All sessions are $400 each for 9 classes. Returning families can receive a $25/session discount. Families who register for all 3 sessions at once receive an additional $100 discount.

Partial scholarships available – please contact Rima for details at education@irondale.org.

Registration for the 2018-19 season now available!
