You know how your kid really wants to be a Jedi, but you have nowhere near the money to fund a manned mission to the Dagobah system so they can train with Master Yoda, nor do you feel like trying to track Luke Skywalker down on that weird island planet Ahch-To that strangely looks like Ireland? Well, luckily you don't have to go QUITE that far for your kid to learn the ways of the Force. They can just go to the Quincy Community Theatre the week of July 16th!

From nine to noon every day that week, Director of Student Theatre Kelsey Celek will teach your young Padawan how to harness that energy field created by all living things that surrounds us and penetrates us; it binds the galaxy together. Aka The Force. Students will use the Star Wars saga as a jumping off point to create their own unique characters, and learn acting and story telling skills.

The classes are open to kids in grades 1 through 5, based on the grade they'll start in the fall. Registration deadline for Jedi Training is July 9th.

The Superhero Academy for children ages eight through 12 on the Autism Spectrum runs two days, July 5th and 6th, for an hour each day and will teach kids on the spectrum useful social skills in a fun, action packed way. Registration deadline for this class is June 25t.
