Effingham Theatre announces date changes, new classes
Placeholder Image

There has been a date change for the Garage Series production of “The Iliad, the Odyssey and all of Greek Mythology in 99 Minutes or Less.” The performance dates are now March 19, 20, 26 and 27.

If you are interested in auditioning but know already that you have plans for that week, which happens to be spring break for Effingham County Schools, don’t worry. There will be more shows this year and you can audition for any of them.

The Effingham Theatre also will be adding acting classes to its theatrical endeavors this year. Several people have expressed an interest in learning more about acting and theatrical performance without the stress of actually having to perform. So to answer this, Effingham Theatre will be offering six weeks of acting classes starting in February.

The classes will focus on very basic beginner level stage acting. There is no age limit on who can enroll. Each class will be an hour long and meet once a week for six weeks.

For the beginner class the Theatre is offering the option to pay for the full session or just one class at a time. The full six week session will be $60, but if you aren’t quite sure about acting and just want to try a few classes without the six-week commitment, each class is $10, due prior to the beginning of each class. This is a great way to investigate something new without the pressure or commitment of a performance.

The first set of classes will start Feb. 3 and run every Wednesday from 6-7 p.m. until March 10. They will be held at B&S Feed and Farm Supply in the upstairs meeting room.

For more information or to register for classes, call Tamara Tyre at 772-3514.
