Acting Classes-Fall session 2014

Does your child make up little shows at home? Does your child look for attention at home and school? Does your child seem shy and socially awkward. Does he or she have a learning disability? Does your child's participation in sports seem to be a disaster?

These are common questions that find their answer in theatre. Though they come for different reasons and from different backgrounds, the common goal of putting on a show makes each individual in an acting class into a team and as a team, they learn to move mountains. Each accomplishment in a child's life is a building block for success in the future as an adult. Theatre transforms kids in so many ways. It teaches them valuable life lessons. The self-discipline needed for theatre transforms well into every other facet of life. For instance; dyslexic kids learn that words can become their friends rather than their enemies.

Bottle Tree Productions has been running acting classes for the last 8 years. We just finished our summer musical theatre camp production of Peter Pan and we are now excited about our upcoming fall classes.

Bottle Tree Productions starts its Fall session of acting classes Saturday ,September 20th at St Andrew's Presbyterian Church on the corner of Princess and Clergy Streets in down town Kingston. Our Stage Right Acting Classes are a great way to learn the fun and fundamentals of theatre. Live theatre is a great way for kids to learn to express themselves, develop their reading skills, learn social skills, find great friends, improve their public speaking skills, improve their grades at school, and to learn what it takes to succeed in show business.

Saturday morning our Stage Right Junior class for 6-10 years old runs from 10 am - 11 am. From 11 am to 12:30 pm it is our intermediate classes which consists of 11-12 years old. Our teen class runs for ninety minutes from 1 pm until 2:30 pm.

From a review by social media journalist Christine Bode

Watch out Michael BublĂ©! Smooth, suave, sophisticated, 60ish Michael K. Myers is a charismatic crooner, who after spending 40 years playing music might just have hit his stride and caught a wave to glory with his brilliantly conceived and orchestrated The Bobby Show!
The Bobby Show debuted last night to a sold out room at The Wellington Street Theatre and left an audience full of fans of the great “Bobby” singers of the late 50’s and early 60’s smiling from ear to ear and showing their appreciation for a superb night of entertainment with a standing ovation.
Written by Kingston, Ontario songwriter and performer Michael K. Myers who sang lead vocals and played guitar for 95% of the show, and joined by his seasoned band The Real Gone CatsTim Hallman (music director, keyboards),Gary Barratt (drums, percussion), and Bob Arlidge (electric bass, stand-up bass) – The Bobby Show is a night of nostalgic hits from “Bobby” singers Bobby Vee, Bobby Darin, Bobby Helms, Bobby Day, Bobby Sherman, Bobby Vinton, Bobby Curtola, Bobby Goldsboro, and Bobby Rydell that will appeal to not only my parents’ generation, but mine as well.
Myers, whose musical inspirations include Burt BacharachLennon & McCartney, and Rodgers and Hart has experience performing music in almost every genre including rock ’n ’roll, country & western, jazz and pop. He’s a skillful guitarist, witty and warm public speaker, and his tenor voice is clear, powerful and as delicious to the ears as Baileys to the tongue.
The band had to come back after their standing ovation and we were gifted with Bobby Freeman’s Do You Wanna Dance?
Did I?! You bet! If The Bobby Show doesn’t put a spark in your shoes, I don’t know what will. Encore, encore!!
