afO has partnered with First Missionary Church to begin an after school school theatre program at Harrison Hill Elementary School. We kicked off in October of 2019 and ended the first session in December 2019.
Students learned theatre basics during an eight week course. The class was made up of 15 3-5th grade students. Each week focused on a specific skill and games and exercises were taught to reinforce the skill. Students were able to show off what they had learned in a final presentation in December for their parents and educators.
afO is looking forward to continuing this program at Harrison Hill in the fall of 2020. We are also working to expand the program to South Wayne Elementary and Fairfield Elementary as well.
