Coming Soon: Teen Drama Club

Stage Curtain

For the first time ever, Hawthorne Branch Library is establishing a Teen Drama Club. This club has been highly requested, and we are excited to pilot it this spring. Teens will be able to make their own movies with our iPads and camera as well as attend two workshops hosted by the Hippodrome Theatre's education department. You can view past participant's movies on our YouTube channel.

Tuesday, Jan. 28, 3-4 p.m. For our first two meetings, we'll be making our own movies to upload to our Hawthorne Library channel. Come with an idea in mind or wait to brainstorm at the library!

Tuesday, Feb. 25, 3-4 p.m. On this meeting, we'll be putting the final touches on our films. 

Tuesday, March 31, 3-4:30 p.m. The Hipp Comes to Hawthorne! Join us this week for a special workshop on acting skills with the Hippodrome. 

Tuesday, April 28, 3-4:30 p.m. The Hipp Comes to Hawthorne!  Join us this week for a special workshop on acting skills with the Hippodrome. 

All skill levels are welcome. Come ready to create!
