Drama at the CCC
Join us this summer for drama games, improvisation, and so much more. Many kids have been bitten by the drama bug at the CCC. Will you be next?
During the Monday-Friday 9am-12pm Morning Program, kids get to explore acting, improvisation, and scene work with our skilled instructors.
On Wednesdays, Brian Ditchfield, Artistic Director of the Martha's Vineyard Film Festival will be on hand to also teach filmmaking! Every Wednesday, Brian Ditchfield & Brooke Hardman will offer a new program, Dramatic Arts Play & Create.
PLAY: DROP IN 9:30-10:30am to play and experiment with theatre games and hands-on filmmaking.
CREATE: SIGN UP 10:30-11:30am to create a short film or play. You will act and shoot scripted and unscripted pieces. Your work may even be shared at the MV Film Festival’s Cinema Circus! Free members.
Hallie Brevetti is a B.F.A. Musical Theatre graduate from Emerson College, who has been living and working in and out of New York City for 6 years. Acting as Drama Director digs back to her roots, since her parents are educators, and since she was lucky enough to take courses from one of the best Theatre Education programs in the country at Emerson. Hallie is thrilled to be appearing in The Winter’s Tale this summer in the Tisbury Amphitheater — she hopes you come out to see it!
