Workshops

The Renaissance is thrilled to join the many quality organizations that provide Anytime programs for the Girl Scouts of Ohio’s Heartland. Workshops can also be formatted for boy scouts, homeschool groups, or other groups of young people. 

All of our Anytime Programs are presented in the format of interactive workshops. Each workshop is three hours in length. If you find that this time will not work for your Scouts, we will be happy to work with you to find something that better fits your group.

With education programs that have been recognized by the Kennedy Center, we’re sure your Scouts will have a blast in our theatre workshops! You can further explore our many program offerings, including “Scout-appropriate” shows, at www.mansfieldtickets.com.

We’re always trying to better align our programming with your needs, so please let us know if you’d like to have a program you don’t see here!

Anytime Programs for Girl Scouts Available at the Renaissance Theatre

Daisies: Fairy Princess Story Theatre
Daisies learn to improvise a story centered around a princess character they create! Using The Twelve Dancing Princesses as a foundation, the world of theatre comes alive as Daisies hear the story, discuss characters, costumes, and scenery & theatre basics. At the end of the workshop, see your princess perform their presentation!

Brownies: American Girl Theatre
Brownies are invited to bring their favorite American Girl friend (optional) to visit the Renaissance. During their time at the theatre, Brownies will read through an American Girl script, and will discuss the things necessary to prepare and perform such a piece. Taught by experienced instructors, areas covered include storytelling, theatre terminology, “readers’ theatre,” improvisation and basic performance skills. At the conclusion of this workshop, Brownies perform an original work in “readers’ theatre style.”

Juniors: Masquerade
Juniors can explore the theatre and its “spectacle” by participating in this one-of-a-kind workshop. Participants will receive a brief overview of how theatre is created along with an opportunity to create their own “spectacular” mask; as well as an opportunity to try on costume pieces to create a theatrical mini-fashion show. Areas covered include theatre history & terminology, improvisation and basic performance technique.

Cadettes: My Story
Cadettes can explore the world of storytelling for the theatre by telling their own story as a theatrical piece. Participants will be guided through the process of writing their own monologue, and be given the opportunity to perform it for their peers. Taught by experienced instructors, areas covered include theatre history and terminology, creative writing and basic performance technique.

Seniors: All the World’s a Stage!
Shakespeare is alive and well at the Renaissance Theatre! Seniors will spend their time at the theatre exploring Shakespeare’s writings in an interesting and theatrical manner. Participants will read through pieces by “The Bard,” and will discuss the things necessary to prepare and perform such a piece. Taught by experienced instructors, areas covered include storytelling, theatre terminology, “readers’ theatre,” improvisation and basic performance skills. At the conclusion of the workshop, Seniors will perform their own original “readers’ theatre” style performance.

Ambassadors: Make a Difference Theatre
Ambassadors will create a theatre piece based on the themes of friendship and the acceptance of others. The piece will be written using the creative writings of the group during the workshop. Participants will explore the art of character study & development, as well as story formation & development, all while gaining self- confidence and strengthening problem-solving and creative-thinking skills. This workshop has been designed to showcase the positive im- pacts the arts can have on a child’s development and understanding of the world around them. Ambassadors will perform a “readers’ theatre” style performance they created at the end of the workshop.

All programs include workshop supplies and a backstage tour of the theatre. Minimum program cost is $50 per workshop.
