About the Organization:
Venture into Schools is
NOVA’s outreach education program for grades 4-6. The program is
dedicated to engaging, inspiring and challenging youth through
performing arts.VIS ishosted at elementary and middle schools,
where students are eligible to audition for a 30-45 minute
musical after school. Up to 50 students participate in the
two-week rehearsal schedule and perform the musical twice. NOVA
provides costumes, props and a minimalist set for each
production. The school provides students and space. Since the
program began in 2003, we have venture into more than 40 schools
and youth organizations.
Description: This is your
opportunity to join the dynamic education crew at NOVA Center
for the Performing Arts.
The instructor is responsible
for assisting in the audition and rehearsal process. Venture
into Schools is designed to be both a creative and educational
process that introduces students to the world of theater and
teaches them how to work successfully in a group setting.
At least two years experience in theater, education or
theater education is required. Experience can be derived through
improvisational acting and or teaching creative drama, not
through attending theatre. Love of theatre is not a qualifier.
Our Venture into Schools season is still being established.
Dates and times for commitment are subject to change.
