Niagara-on-the-Lake’s Yellow Door Theatre Project is now accepting registration for its expanded fall “reCREATIONal” programs.

The classes offer children between the ages of five and 17 weekly skill training in musical theatre, monologue and scene study, and introductory dance.

All classes are 30 minutes to one hour long, depending on the age group, and are taught by experienced theatre professionals.

The Virgil theatre company’s programs are open to students who have no experience, as well as those with experience who want to continue to develop their skills, said artistic director Andorlie Hillstrom.

In addition to regular studio classes in musical theatre, tap, jazz, etc., Yellow Door has added new classes in acting for the camera and the YDTP Tour Group, she said.

Acting for the camera teaches students scene and monologue techniques, as well as how to do commercial and TV/film auditions, Hillstrom said.

“The YDTP Tour Group, on the other hand, is for those who love to sing and dance in front of a live audience,” she said.

“Students will learn vocals and choreography for the purpose of touring and representing Yellow Door Theatre Project throughout the Niagara region.”
