The Youth Theatre Studio of the William Inge Center of the Arts at Independence Community College welcomes Meagan Moore as instructor for the spring acting classes for children.
The course consists of seven class sessions which run on Saturdays, beginning March 2, and continue March 9,16, 30, and April 6, 13, and 20.
Meagan Moore has been involved in multiple professional projects with the Inge Center and ICC productions over the years, in Neewollah productions, both onstage and off, as well as directing three children's musicals through Four County Mental Health, where she currently works as a children's case manager.
She is a former ICC theater student who also studied theater at Stephens College before going on to complete Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology at Pittsburg State University. She resides in Cherryvale with her husband, Alex, and daughter, Evie.
"It's exciting to have the opportunity through the Inge Center at ICC to teach a theater class geared towards the younger generation,” she said. “I believe a passion for theater can develop at any age and I hope contribute to establishing the interest of our community's youth in theater in a fun, interactive way."
There are courses for two age levels: 3rd through 5th graders, from 9:00 a.m. to 10:15 a.m., and then grades 6th through 8th from 10:45 a.m. to noon.
The Inge Center also has a sponsorship program so that a donation of the class can be made to allow a needy scholarship student to attend the sessions.
The fee is $ 90 for the seven classes. Enrollment can be made in person or by phone by contacting Bruce Peterson at the Inge Center office at (620) 332-5492 or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
A $50 deposit is required to hold a spot in the class, which is limited to 15 students each. The balance is due at the first class.
The William Inge Center for the Arts at Independence Community College offers quality year-round educational and artistic programming. It is best known as sponsor of the annual William Inge Theatre Festival, which is the Official State Theatre Festival of Kansas.

This program is presented in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency, which believes a great nation deserves great art.
