RenUnity_chopra_topGuest View: Acting Out Kids Community Theatre – royal_servicesSign Up to Be a Part!

(Nicole Siwak, March 27, 2015)

Acting Out Kids Community Theatre is a youth theatre in Clawson.  It is unique because it was created by kids, Madison and Max Siwak, and is led by kids (with adult supervision and guidance).  We offer productions, acting classes, professional workshops, field trips, community events and drop-in events every 2nd and 4th Friday of the month for kids ages 8-18 years old.  We also have a youth committee where kids ages 8-18 are welcome to join us in helping to plan fun events for our theatre and for the community.

Since we are a kids community theatre, our emphasis is on kids and community.  We believe that kids should be Judy_Palmer30yearsinvolved in the community, so we volunteer and perform at a variety of local community events on a regular basis. Participation in community events is encouraged, but never required.

The founders of this theatre, Madison and Max Siwak, are also the creators and hosts of Awesome Clawson and Awesome Clawson Kids, which are two separate local TV shows that highlight people, businesses, organizations and events in Clawson. The shows are taped once a month and air on the Clawson municipal channel (several days a week) and the Clawson education channel (everyday). The shows are also available on the city of Clawson website-

For the Awesome Clawson Kids TV show, we use kids from our theatre (Acting Out Kids Community Theatre) to report on news and upcoming events that are happening in schools in Clawson.  We also use our theatre kids to act in Reid_Sally_115commercials that we write and film every month to advertise for upcoming events in Clawson.

Our emphasis with both the theatre and the TV shows are to get kids to become active in the community and to be positive role models for other kids. At the same time, kids are learning real life skills such as public speaking, taking initiative, building confidence, being creative, working as part of a team, mentoring and leadership, all while making new friends and having fun in a safe, non-competitive and welcoming environment.

Kids from all cities are welcome to participate in our theatre.  We are a non-profit, so almost all of our events (for both sideHeadLinesthe theatre and the TV show) are free or very low cost and most of these events are fun ways for kids to help out and become active in the community.

We will begin a new 6 week session of acting classes for kids ages 7-12 starting on April 21.  The acting classes will be on Tuesdays from 4:00-5:00pm at the Hunter Community Center in Clawson.  The cost is $50.00 per child. The class will be taught by Madison and Max Siwak.
