We are very excited to announce our very first after-school drama program! Below is all the information you need to know:
New Place Theatre is a new creation by Brian Fauth, the former founder and Artistic Director of the Limelight Theatre Company, a youth theatre program sponsored by the Oswegoland Park District. He has also managed drama programs for Sandwich High School, Bednarcik Junior High, Plank Junior High, and Storm Dance Alliance. He studied theatre at University College Dublin, in Ireland, with noted playwrights and directors Conor McPherson, Frank McGuinness, and Patrick Mason.
Junior Dramatics has been developed by Brian Fauth, Sam Loveland, Jasmine Moore, and Megan Conrad. Sam is finishing up her studies in theatre at North Central College and Jasmine and Megan are both juniors at Aurora University, currently majoring in theatre studies.
Your instructors for this session of Junior Dramatics will be Jasmine Moore and Megan Conrad.
