Theatre arts workshops for older adults to start March 20

March 6, 2022

The Milton Public Library announced a creative arts series of classes, Big Kids on Stage: A Theatre Arts Workshop, for adults 55 years and above.

The free sessions will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m., Thursdays, starting March 20 and continuing through April 28, at the Milton library, 121 Union St., Milton.

This is the second round of theatre workshops offered by the library through a Delaware Division of the Arts grant in conjunction with Lifetime Arts.

Big Kids on Stage invites adults to explore their creativity and imagination along with others while developing strong theater skills including improvisation, movement, developing characters, scene building through original writing, and more. Participants will get to know some wonderful people to learn and grow with while developing skills together.

This series will be taught by Melissa Berman, who brings more than 25 years of experience as an innovative, critically acclaimed, award-winning teaching artist and performer in theater, dance and music. Berman was the performing arts specialist in residence for the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. She is currently working with the Delaware Institute for the Arts in Education as a teaching artist.

As a headlining performer, and accomplished musician and arranger, Berman has an extensive background in film, television, commercials and radio which includes national performing credits.

Registration is limited. For more information and to register, call the Milton Public Library at 302-855-1975 or go to
