Edmonds Driftwood Players is thrilled to announce its brand-new education program for youth and adults, Driftwood Troupe. Marianni Groves recently joined the Driftwood team to develop the program that covers all elements of theatrical arts.

Weekly spring sessions will begin the last week of February with several classes including Musical Theatre Dance for ages 12 to adult, Acting 101 for 4th-6th graders, morning Arts Adventure class for 3-5 year olds, Audition Tech for 7th to 12th graders, and many more.

Summer camps are lined up for all ages, including two exciting four-week programs for teens. Troupe Mainstage (ages 11-16) will be learning and performing the full production of Thoroughly Modern Millie, while Teen Troupe (ages 15-20) will be rehearsing Into the Woods.

Driftwood’s Managing Director, Amy Gentry, says of the new program

 “Edmonds is such a fantastic arts community, we are ecstatic to become the place where people of all ages and experience levels can explore their talents and thrive. Marianni’s enthusiasm and her experience in performing arts education make her a wonderful additional to our organization. We just can’t wait to see it take off.”

Driftwood Troupe classes and camps will be student-centered experiences focusing on working together to hone basic acting and performance skills, developing talent, and cultivating creativity.
