Actors from The Northlight Theatre in Skokie are visiting Marie Murphy for 3 different hands-on theatre workshops. 6th graders will be involved in a devised theatre session, in which they will develop their own unique theatre piece around a social issue theme.7th graders will be taught about theatrical stage makeup and get to explore its power of illusion on each other. 8th graders will have the opportunity to participate in a stage combat training workshop. These workshops will take place over a 2-day period (March 20th and 21st). This is excellent timing as the Marie Murphy theatre department is busy preparing for their spring performance of “Wait, Wait…I Can Explain” set for April 28, 2017.
