Info on Prodigy Players Kids Acting Troupe and Invite to Attend a (Free) Performance

by Ann Sullivan

A few of us were comparing notes about some of the great kids activities, classes, etc. available around Carlsbad and Encinitas, and the subject of acting came up -- I can’t recall everyone who was there at the time, so please feel free to share or forward this email.

Our older daughter Brenna has been involved with Prodigy Players, a local kids’ theatre troupe, for the past 2+ years. She really enjoys it, and the owner/director, Caryn Hall is fabulous. Since Mairin turned six, she is now eligible to join the troupe, and she is looking forward to starting this fall.

I know she would be over the moon if some of her friends wanted to do it with her, so I thought I would let you know about an upcoming Prodigy Players show in case you and your kids want to check it out.

They will be performing on Sunday, June 16th at 2pm at the Encinitas Library. This will be their last performance until classes start back up again in September. Admission is free.

What we like/have noticed:

  • Memorization of lines skills transfer to school work; e.g., recalling facts, test prep, etc.
  • Confidence gets developed/less fear and nerves when asked to present in front of the class, etc.
  • Both of our girls have shown zero interest in team sports. Acting/putting on plays is all about being part of a team – everyone has to do their parts well to create a successful performance. Just like on a sports team, you have to make it to practices (classes) – so it requires a real commitment to a real team.
  • Caryn Hall (the owner/director) is a great coach – she gives the kids “real” feedback that they need to improve – and she’s very fun, energetic and positive.

This year, Prodigy Players classes were held on Wednesday evenings from 5:30pm – 6:45pm. Typically there are a handful of additional rehearsal dates that take place before a performance, but it’s pretty manageable. Kids often need help from parents to learn their lines, which we have lots of fun doing – we get very dramatic.

Hope you find this info helpful, and we hope you will consider joining Mairin at Prodigy Players in the fall!

With kind regards,

Ann

I wanted to tell u how much fun Avery had at Camp! Literally I think it was the most she has ever enjoyed any camp! She sang and danced and performed Fame every night for us, and one night for company! :-)
Anyway we were pretty impressed with how great it was and wanted to let you know. Wish she could do another week!!

Peter passed out

The kids had a fantastic time (so did we!). And the picture is a living proof! Peter passed out in the car (3 hour nap!!!!- he doesn't nap these days) 5 minutes after we left the studio.
We'll see you next year!

What a nice opportunity for kids to “act” out! Caryn has the magic touch when it comes to getting my daughter to sing, dance, and act! For days after having a class there, my daughter is singing the songs! It is so wonderful to see a structured arts class that embraces my child’s imagination and talents! We will go to a week-long summer camp and have our kid’s birthday party there! We love it!
