WALDOBORO — The Waldo announces new theatre education programs for youth and adults consisting of 10-week after school and early evening classes beginning in October. Each of the four fall courses being offered is designed for a
specific age group: 1st through 3rd grade, 4th through 6th grade, 7th through 12th grade, and adults age 18 and up.

Designed by the Waldo’s new education manager, Mia Branco, the classes are an invitation for participants to bring their voice and creativity to the stage, no matter their age or experience with theatre.

“At the Waldo, we are all about building community through the joy, connection, and expression that performing arts embody,” said Branco. “These classes bring us together to learn, create, and, most importantly, have some fun together.”

Branco will teach two of the youth courses, while Teralyn Reiter of Storytree Theatre will lead the high school student and adult courses. Reiter made a splash in the local theatre scene when her play about Frances Perkins, “The Only Woman in the Room,” premiered at the Lincoln Theatre this summer. All classes will be conducted at the theatre in Waldoboro Village.

“My hope is that anyone who has ever been curious about theatre will come join us as we learn, explore and play together,” said Reiter. “Everyone is welcome!”

Additional information about the classes, including dates, registration, and scholarship information, can be found on the Waldo’s website: waldotheatre.org.
