What happens when a boy discovers his real father is a Greek god and superpowers run in the family?
Explore the worlds of acting, music, and modern dance in…STORIES on STAGE this Fall.
Students in grades 5 through 8 will each have the opportunity to explore acting, movement, and composition through this brief series of workshops, culminating in a final performance for family and friends on October 28th.
Guided by choreographer Ellen Sinopoli, we will interpret and perform scenes from the best selling book, The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. With musician Brian Melick we will compose our own soundtrack (music and sound effects) to accompany those scenes.
This project is made possible in part through a Community Art$Grant, a program funded by The Arts Center of the Capital Region through the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.
