Improv and character lessons at HYT's Drama Club
Horizon Youth Theatre's Drama Club is Tuesday from 4:30 to 6 p.m. at St. Mark's Lutheran Church, 315 S. College Dr.
In Improvisation, for children in grades six through nine, students will play theater games and do improvisation scenes. They will learn about the art of improv and what to do and how to act in sudden and changing scenes. This will help students be actors who can think on their toes and who have the ability to change and adjust characters and scenes at any moment.
Characterization is for children in grades one through five. Students will learn about characterization and how to make a character from scratch. The students will focus on how characters move and talk and how to transform themselves into a new person. The students will also work on scenes that include famous characters and will make new persons out of those existing characters.
No RSVP is necessary. Cost is $5 per session.

Register for Kids' Tech
There is still time to register for Kids' Tech University for two April sessions. They are for fourth through sixth-graders.
"Why Doesn't My Banana Get the 'Flu?" with Dr. Brett Tyler is April 6.
"What Can Flies Tell Us About Human Health and Evolution?" with Dr. Ron Woodruff is April 13.
This educational program is held in Olscamp Hall at Bowling Green State University from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
KTU strives to create a "university feel" that includes children attending an interactive session (lecture) with their peers in a university lecture hall. Volunteers counselors will be with the children within the lecture space.
The afternoon sessions includes a series of hands-on activities, relevant to the session topic that the children can participate in with their parents.
The KTU program was initiated at BGSU in 2012 as an outreach program to increase the interest of children ages 9-12 in science and technology careers. KTU is a collaborative effort between BGSU and 4-H, the educational OSU Extension outreach programs of Ottawa and Wood County.
Registration for the two sessions is $25. Contact Kathleen Booher at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
