BRUNSWICK — The Theater Project’s fall session of theater classes will begin with a production class for actors in grades 6 to 8.

Production classes use improvisational techniques with a focus on story and script. Students learn to work together, to take responsibility for their work, to problem solve together, to use their imaginations creatively, and to take pride in their work.

“The Bully Plays” is a collection of short plays that will challenge, inspire and enlighten, and help confront the issue of bullying in a constructive and creative way. “The Bully Plays” will run Sept. 17 to Oct. 14 from 4 to 6 p.m., Mondays through Thursdays, and will be onstage Oct. 12 to 14. The class fee is $300, and scholarships are available.

This production is also part of an outreach program The Theater Project is conducting with Georgetown Central School, aided by a component fund of The Maine Community Foundation.

“Princes, Princesses and Dragons” is the next class for actors in grades 3 to 5, starting Oct. 29 and running Mondays from 4 to 5 p.m. until Dec. 17. This is one of The Theater Project’s storytelling classes, which offer young actors the opportunity to work with stories they know, learning techniques to turn them into theater. The Theater Project emphasizes process and socializing, problem solving and imagination through theater games and improvisational techniques. The fee for this class is $80.

Another storytelling class this year is “The Lorax,” a class for actors in grades 1 and 2. “The Lorax” will run Jan. 8 to Feb. 12 on Tuesdays from 4 to 5 p.m., with a class fee of $60.
