Globus introduces new web series

By Lindsay Advocate

Katherine Cappellacci, facilitator.

This winter, in addition to their in-person classes Globus Theatre’s School of Dramatic Art invites kids between the ages of 10-17 to flex their creative muscles and help make episodes of a web series. This program is great for kids interested in script writing, film, theatre, acting, video editing, and more. All sessions are taking place over Zoom – which means kids from all over Kawartha Lakes can join. 

This program begins Feb. 4 and ends March 14. One episode per week will be made through three sessions: 

  • Fridays 7:00-8:30pm SCRIPT WRITING – Learn about the parts of a script, story arc, character development, and more as we finalize the episode’s script!  
  • Saturdays 1:00-3:00pm ACTING – Casting, rehearsing, and getting the scenes filmed!  
  • Mondays 7:00-8:30pm EDITING – See the episode get edited together, add your input and learn the ways editing determines how a story is told!  

Kids can sign up to be a part of the entire five-episode process or just choose aspects of the course based on their interest and availability. Only want to sign up for one week/help make one episode? No problem. Rather sign up for just the writing sessions? Sure! By the end of the program, Globus Theatre will release five completed short episodes. Participants, their families, and peers will be able to watch each episode.  

The course is funded in part by Pinnguaq and the Digital Skills for Youth program. Subsidies are available to cover course tuition to make this opportunity accessible to all. To sign up or learn more please call us 705 738 2037 or go to our website
