Malenkaya Kompaniya Theater Studio was founded in 2008. During these years our students have put many plays on stage (Kolobok, Cinderella, The Little Prince, The Elephant’s Child, Buratino, The Cat that Walked by Himself and many others). Our studio participated in the Festival of Russian Children’s Theaters in Washington, DC two times. Our adaptation of The Little Prince received the first prize in the classic works category.
The theater studio accepts children from 5 years old to 13 years old. Students of our Drama Program develop the technique of speech, memorize lyrics, tongue-twisters, songs and dances, design puppets and props, learn the basics of drama and puppetry, and participate in shows and performances. Acting helps children improve their public speaking skills and self-esteem. During the classes, children not only have fun but also learn to work in team and listen to others.
Children are placed in groups according to age and knowledge of Russian. The groups are small (5-8 kids), and all classes are in Russian. All theater terms are taught in Russian and English.
The program includes 3 classes in one session: drama, Russian language and rhetoric enrichment, and singing and stage movement. There is a small snack after the second class.
Missed classes – in case of an excused absence, the payment (except for $10 fee per session) is transferred to the next term.
If there is space, it is possible to register for only one class at the KidzHOME Learning Center Base Lesson Price.
For older kids and HS students we offer Public Speaking Classes.
