STAGE 284 Theater Workshop for Kids

Spome of the kids that performed in Stage 284's Theater Workshop For Kids production of Madeline!

This program will explore performance through exciting themes that will get your kids up and exercising their imaginations. Through creative movement, writing, theater games, props, set and costume, character development and analysis, we will explore the art of drama from the ground up! Starting with Greek Theater and ending with an exploration of Modern Day Musicals, students will get a sense of the work it takes to create a play from start to finish. This hands-on session will culminate in a short performance for family and friends created by your children!

Excelsis Percussion Quartet

The Excelsis Percussion Quartet will perform at Salem State University.

From the four corners of the planet, the love of percussion and performance has brought together Marcelina Suchocka (Poland), Aya Kaminaguchi (Japan), Clara Warnaar (Canada-United States), and Mariana Ramirez (Mexico) as the Excelsis Percussion Quartet. These amazing women, hailing from four different countries and speaking four different languages, blend their talents to speak the universal language of rhythm with innovative perception. EXCELSIS invites the world into a celebration of percussion with its pageantry of marimbas, drums, cymbals, xylophones, and vibraphones.
