Center Descriptions:

            You can use the entire stage or we can pull a center curtain.  Lights on and lights off are available along with a follow spot.  Two hand held microphones are also available.  The light booth is on the second floor at the top of the stairs.

     Center 2 - Library - Choral Reading and Ensemble Acting

        There will be a large space available at the front of the room. The library is carpeted.

    Center 3 - Vocal Room - Musical Theater

        There will be large space available at the front of the room.  The room is carpeted.

      This is a large classroom on the first floor.  It is not carpeted.

     This room is on the second floor.  It is a fairly large classroom with plenty of space.  No carpet.

    On the second floor, this classroom is large and has a whiteboard at the front of the room for a projection surface.

  Center 7 - Room 206  - Group Improv

    Also on the second floor, this is a large room with no carpet.  This room has mostly student desks and we will squeeze in as many extra chairs for improv as we can.

Center 8 - Room 220 - Mime and TV News

   Located on the second floor, this is a good sized room WITH CARPET.  It can get a little warm in there, so you probably won't want to hang out too long.

A note from Kim Keller - 

My goal for the Manson Northwest Webster Speech Program is to provide students with the support and coaching they need to become confident and effective communicators. Although I take tremendous pride in the success rate our students experience at contest, the rating at the end of the day is not as important as the personal growth each one of our students experiences during the rehearsal and performance process.

Thank you for allowing your students to participate in Speech.  It's going to be a great year!
