• Jerry Tracy’s Tuesday Troupers class for 8- to 12-year-olds will strike up again, slightly expanded, from 3:30-5:30 p.m. Jan. 10 through Feb. 28. This is an eight-week course and tuition is $80. The Troupers will focus on performance skills such as projection, articulation and characterization.

Tracy is assisted by Riley Newton. The theme this session is the weather. A parent or responsible family representative must attend a brief orientation meeting at 3:30 p.m. Jan. 10 immediately before the first class officially begins.

• Felicity Johnson will continue her popular Intergenerational Acting class from 2-4 p.m. Thursdays, Jan. 12 through March 2. Tuition is $80. This class is open to people of all ages and expanded to eight weeks.

• Nicole Gour once again will lead a six-week class for youngsters ages 4-7 from 4:30-5:30 p.m. Thursdays, Jan. 12 through Feb. 16. Tuition is $60. Gour gave the class a new name for the new year: The Little Theatre Club.

The LTC will focus on increasing self-confidence and developing basic social and performance skills. A parent or responsible family representative must attend a brief orientation meeting at 4:30 p.m. Jan. 12 immediately before the first class officially begins.

All of the above classes will take place at the historic Aloha Theatre in Kainaliu, and each will culminate in a free performance, open to the public, on the final class day. Online registration at AlohaTheatre.com is recommended.
