History of Theatre

Virtual Classes with Tom Berger

Tues.Oct.6 to 27

7pm to 8pm

Weekly Classes, All Ages

Go with director and teaching artist Tom Berger on a 2,800-year journey back to the early beginnings of the theatre. From Ancient Greece to Rome to Shakespeare to Hamilton, Berger modifies the course he created for Stagedoor Manor to cover how theatre has changed over the centuries as well as how theatre has affected and reflected the world around it. Part interactive lecture, part text analysis, and part exploring texts from every major era of history, Theatre History is a great way to get a more rounded and appreciative view of theatre and its importance to the world.  This is a virtual class and will take place from your device at home! $60 per student, ages 14 & up! Please be sure to provide your email address so we can send you more information! Click Here:Registration Form

Tom Berger

Tom Berger’s work as a director, music director, choreographer, and teaching artist has been seen all over the country in something like 400-odd productions.

Locally, Tom has worked with STC, Kiel Area Theatre, UW-Sheboygan, and the Sheboygan, Kewaunee, and Plymouth school districts, among others. He currently serves as Artistic Director of Seven Ages Theatricals, Creative Director of the new Manitowoc venue Parkview Playhouse, and an artistic consultant for Lakeshore Productions, Inc., where he’ll return to (hopefully) direct and choreograph The Wizard of Oz in 2021.
