Are you a young person interested in theatre, music or visual art? Huntsville Festival of the Arts (HfA) is pleased to open registration for a number of exciting arts educational opportunities this fall and winter.
The Snow Queen Outdoor Play offers youth ages 7-12 the opportunity to participate in the creation and performance of the famous fairy tale “The Snow Queen” by Hans Christian Andersen (which is also the inspiration for the movie Frozen).
Starting November 2, participants will work with local professional artists for 12 weeks to create all aspects of the performance including acting, costumes, music, and building giant puppets. The creation will be led by local artists Catherine Luce (visual/puppetry), Christina Serra (theatre), and Sarah Spring (music). The final performances will take place February 19-21, 2021. The audience will follow the action of the play to different outdoor spaces around downtown Huntsville. It’s sure to be a memorable and magical experience for participants and audience alike!
Teen Performing Arts Nights (TPAN) is an exciting program geared for youth aged 12-18 years. Now in its second year, the program strives to create a fun and safe space for youth to share their passions and interests in the arts to develop an appreciation of the arts and identify potential career paths. Hosted by Alberta Robinet and Tim Lucier, both artists and educators, the program will be held on the last Tuesday of every month beginning on October 27 covering a wide variety of artistic forms including drama, music, visual art, and digital media.
On November 12 and 19, artist/educator Christina Serra will offer two free trial classes in music and movement. Disco Ducks is a fun and friendly environment for caregivers and tots to socialize and explore music and movement. In each class, participants will take part in simple disco dancing, instrument play and exploration, rhythm games, and guitar sing-a-long. If you like to boogie, this is the class for you!
All programs will run at the HfA Studio located at 58 Main St. E (entrance across from River Mill Park next to the Mill on Main). Spots are limited. Health and safety protocols will be enforced including distancing, masks, and cleaning.
